Overexploitation of Parrots in the Neotropics

This case study-based exercise is designed to foster the practice of critical thinking—a habit of mind characterized by the comprehensive exploration of issues and evidence before accepting or formulating an opinion or conclusion—in the context of a complex and real conservation problem: the overexploitation of parrots in the Neotropics. The exercise has three parts: an introduction, a case study, and four exercise questions that promote critical consideration and strategic problem solving of a specific conservation issue.
