This fascinating and beautiful species is endemic to Africa. Turacos are the only bird species to possess true red and green pigments. They do this by synthesizing copper, while most other birds create these colors through their feather structures. Turacos sometimes are considered an agricultural pest in some farming regions due to their feeding habits. We are proud to protect a bird like the Turaco because it is a natural seed disperser in forests.
