Plum-headed Parakeet

Adorned with a bright cherry-coloured head, the Plum-headed Parakeet is one of the most cheerful-looking birds you'll see in Indian forests. Illegal capture for the pet trade is a growing threat to the bird's populations, and hundreds can be spotted in cages at illegal bird markets, thanks to poor enforcement of wildlife laws in India.

The cartoon is from my column with Roundglass Samsara, an online environment magazine.
