(DNO) For the first time in world history, Dominica’s Sisserou Parrot – which has been in captivity – has produced offspring.
Forestry and wildlife officials are elated after several years of failed attempts.
Assistance Forest Officer Steve Durand said such an occurrence is rare in the world today.
“We should be proud because the Sisserou is for the first time in Dominica and the world that an imperial parrot has given birth. I am really expected and amidst all of the negativity; this is a moment for us to be happy,” he said.
