The red-spectacled amazon is a declining species as it is highly threatened by the destruction of the Aruacaria moist forests and the illegal exotic pet trade. An analysis of the extinct Amazona pretrei population records reveals that the species disappeared due to severe habitat loss, and in the past, the parrot’s geographical range was at least 10% larger than the current range
The bulk of the Red Spectacled Amazon’s natural diet consists of seeds, berries, fruits (Eugenia sp, Campomanesia sp, Nectandra spp, Ocotea spp.); probably also flowers, buds and nuts foraged in trees.
