Grey-breasted Conure

The first pair of this species came to Paradise Park in 2015. We were keen to co-operate in the breeding scheme for these pretty conures because their status in the wild is ‘Critically Endangered’.

Sadly, surveys show that they are declining rapidly owing to heavy trapping and ongoing habitat loss within their range.

Our pair came from Chester Zoo and produced five chicks in their first season here.
