Good and bad news
Spix's Macaws at Loro Parque have laid, but Diego Calderon, a dedicated young ornithologist, was taken hostage by FARC
Some good news and bad. Firstly I have heard that the Spix's Macaws at Loro Parque have laid. Secondly I have heard that Diego Calderon, a dedicated young ornithologist, was taken hostage in mid-April by FARC, the guerrilla group in Colombia, whilst working in the field. Diego suffers from chronic diabetes and there is great concern that he may not be getting the necessary supplies of insulin. Various organisations are trying to contact the guerrillas through websites they are known to visit to get information on Diego's whereabouts and condition. Let us hope he is released soon.
