A beautifully illustrated children’s book tells the story of the iguaca, Puerto Rico’s endangered parrot:
Iguaca! Iguaca! the parrots called as they looked for deep nesting holes under the tall trees. Down below, waves from the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean washed the island’s white-sand beaches. Delicate orchids and wide-spreading ferns, tiny tree frogs, kapok trees bursting with seedpods, and big, scary iguanas covered the land.
