The Grey-breasted Parakeet is listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. It has also been identified as an Alliance for Zero Extinction species due to this status and the bird’s limited range. Barely 13 percent of the parakeet’s original habitat remains, and most of the population hangs on in just one isolated area.
