In a thousand years the Hyacinth Macaw could most likely be extinct considering there are only an estimated 2,500 to 5,000 Hyacinth Macaws left in the wild today. These Macaws are endangered due to destruction of their environment, hunting for feathers and food, and illegal poaching for the pet trade have contributed to the Hyacinth's declining numbers. However, these Macaws could adapt to the changes they are going through and survive another couple thousand years.
