This is a Pesquet's parrot also known as the vulturine parrot.
The feathers of the Pesquet's parrot are highly prized. This combined with high prices in aviculture has resulted in over hunting. Habitat loss also presents an ongoing problem. For these reasons, it is evaluated as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. The Pesquet's parrot is listed on Appendix II of CITES.
