Parrots are among the most distinctive and beautiful birds in the world. They are also among the most endangered bird groups, threatened by habitat loss through land clearance, the trapping of adults, and the taking of chicks from the nest for the international live-bird trade. A number of species are currently in danger of extinction.

Vanished and Vanishing Parrots is a comprehensive reference on species that have become extinct or are in danger of becoming extinct. The book is organised into three regional sections, the Australasian Distribution, the Afro-Asian Distribution, and the Neotropical Distribution. Each section contains an introduction covering the status of parrots in the region, with particular emphasis on threats that have caused the extinction or endangerment of species, and current and suggested further conservation measures.

Within the regional sections, species accounts provide up-to-date information on distribution, status, habitats, movements, calls, habits and breeding behaviour. Each account is accompanied by a magnificent colour plate by renowned artist Frank Knight. Vanished and Vanishing Parrots is a valuable reference for scientific, ornithological, and avicultural organisations, as well as bird lovers and natural history enthusiasts.
