One Earth Conservation News
Rosa came into this world weighing maybe 20 grams, all pink with unruly yellowish down. I, nor any other human, knew her then. I also never met her parents, but I imagine they loved her, and cared for her. They stroked her body with their beaks, pulling at the sheath of her new feathers so they could sprout rainbow and rise over the earth. But then one day men came to her home, broke into it, and pulled Rosa screaming from the warm comfort of the place where she was safe, loved. At least that is one version of her early life.
ROSA DIDN'T MAKE IT
Her rescue and care, and that of many endangered and injured wild scarlet macaws like her, is made possible by gifts from people like you. Although her injuries kept her from flying free, she nurtured many other birds liberated from the Parrot Rescue and Liberation Center in the indigenous village of Mabita in Honduras.

Another telling is that the men hacked into her pine tree, and felled it to get to Rosa on the ground. However she became a prisoner of human desire, she ended up with broken legs and wings. Her parents swooped, calling until they were hoarse, but to no avail. They would never see Rosa again...
