Art of Nature + Art of Painting + Art of Fashion: Celebrating World Parrot Day with Wildlife Jewels Sapphire the Spixs Macaw!

Discover Wildlife Jewels Sapphire the Spixs Macaw, inspired by the precious Spix's Macaw!

Thrilled to be sharing images from my original painting Sapphire The Spixs Macaw and exclusive FashWand fashion items inspired by one of the most stunningly beautiful birds in the World, The Spix's Macaw.

The natural beauty of the Spix's Macaw, the gemstone sapphire, and intricate details of Ancient Architecture were the inspiration for details of this exclusive Collection.

About the Spixs Macaw: Spix’s is a majestic Macaw native to Brazil. Spix’s Macaw is by far the rarest Macaw. Sadly due to hunting, their population has had massive decline, they are possibly extinct in the wild.

We are kicking off this luxe collection with a few of our pieces inspired by this precious bird, many more designs are in progress and will be launched soon!

About Parrots: Parrots are some of the most amazingly beautiful and precious birds in the world. Parrots including Cockatoos, Macaws, Amazons,  African Greys, and so much more can be found in many regions of the world, such as northern Mexico, Australia, South America, Indonesia, and Central America.   

Parrots are extremely smart and emotional, they are known to be as smart as a 5 year old child. Large parrots like Macaws are among the longest living parrot species, they can live an average of 50 years, they have also been known to live up to 100 years!

Why Parrots need our help?

Parrots are becoming extinct and threatened in great extent due to habitat destruction, illegal wildlife trade, and wildlife trafficking, and illegal trapping for the pet trade. Approximately 75 percent of captured parrots die before reaching the consumer, which in Mexico alone translates to roughly 50,000 to 60,500 annually. Between 80,000 to 90,000 parrots are poached on an annual basis in Peru.


Some ways you can help protect Parrots:

1- Do not buy parrots as pets

2- Work with conservation foundations to stop parrot trafficking and trade

3- Develop laws to ban parrots being bred in captivity besides ones that are bred for conservation 

4- Ban airlines that aid in transport of parrots

5- If you come across parrots being sold on social media that are potentially victims of wildlife trade, report their accounts ASAP.
