Saving the Sisserou

Dominica's Sisserou seems to a relic from an earlier time: it doesn't quite look, or behave, like the parrots people in the Caribbean often see squawking across the sky on evenings - and, unlike its cousins, the Sisserou is endangered. But the Sisserou has some good friends who have found a way to help save this remarkable bird. Peter Rickwood explains
