CBRO

Brazilian Ornithological Records Committee

The CBRO (Brazilian Ornithological Records Committee) has been formed to create a forum to discuss and publish data related to the distribution of birds in Brazil.
The CBRO will review and update the information available about avian distribution in Brazil, and will consolidate and publish its conclusions on the Internet in the form of a regular newsletter. This newsletter will be entitled "Nattereria", in homage to the Austrian naturalist who laid the basis for the study of the distribution of birds in Brazil.

Priorities

The CBRO’s priorities at the national level are to:

* Maintain an up-to-date list of the species of birds that occur in Brazil, classified as resident species, regular visitors and accidental

* Create lists of birds that probably or possibly occur in Brazil but where no documented record exists
* Make recommendations as to taxonomic and nomenclatural treatment and maintain records of changes

The CBRO’s priorities at the state level are to:

* Verify the state records for each species

* Create lists for each state of species with undocumented or questionable records
* Identify, where possible, the species that have probably disappeared from each state or region

The Spix’s Macaw project

The Spix’s Macaw project

The Spix’s Macaw (Cyanopsitta spixii) is the world’s most threatened bird species. There is only a single wild bird remaining, living in nature in the region of Curaçá, Bahia, and another 60 are kept in captivity around the world (Brazil, Spain, Switzerland and the Philippines).
The Spix’s Macaw (known locally as “ararinha-azul”, what means “little blue macaw”) was always rare in nature, and during centuries of human colonization, its habitat is being degradated. The main factor that led this species to this dramatic situation was the illegal trapping.
In 1990, the Brazilian Government created the Permanent Committee for the Recovery of the Spix’s Macaw, called CPRAA. This Committee is formed by IBAMA, São Paulo Zoo, Criadouro Chaparral, Loro Park Foundation (Tenerife/Spain), Birds International (Philippines), Houston Zoo, international sponsors, international organizations and researchers.
