I've opted to write a track for one of my favourite animals - the macaw. The bird in question is the Blue-Throated variety that hails from Bolivia, where habitat destruction (due to the coffee industry) has dwindled their number to around 100. That's right - only ONE HUNDRED birds leftl!!! That makes them CRITICALLY ENDANGERED!

These dudes build their nests in palm-tree clusters (not in the forests) and they're running out of places to nest. They're pretty easy to breed in captivity, and are common pets in the West, where they live in people's bathrooms.

  1. 100 is a ridiculously pitiful number, does that include the numbers in bathrooms?
