From Armonia, the Bolivian bird conservation organization:
"A priority site for conservation measures is the Laguna Esmeralda Departmental Reserve in Quirusillas in the department of Santa Cruz, at the northern limit of the species’ range. Here, Armonía has been working with nine communities to raise awareness and build support for the conservation and protection of the Tucuman Parrot and its habitat. Significant progress has been made. In 2009, the Tucuman Parrot was recognized as a natural heritage symbol of Quirusillas and is now included as the central figure in the municipal coat of arms. In addition, the mayor of Quirusillas signed a declaration in support of the ban on capture and trade of the Tucuman Parrot. Armonía is assisting the development of a conservation and management plan for the Laguna Esmeralda Reserve."
