    Since 2002 Zoo Curitiba is working on a breeding-programm with Amazons. At the moments 4 species are being kept and 3 of them are breeding :
    with the Red-browed amazon Curitiba had the Brazilian Zoo-first breeding
    the Vinaceous amazon is breeding quite well
    the Red-spectacled amazon has raised 22 young since 2010, last year alone 12 young were raised of this species
    Strange enough the Red-tailed amazon - the species with which the programm started in 2002 and from which at the moment 6 pairs are kept - has sofar not bred !
