Population Status

Andean Flamingo is among the rarest species of flamingos (6). In March 2001, 223 fledglings were recorded at Los Aparejos, Argentina (6). Surveys conducted in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, and Peru recorded 33,918 Andean Flamingos in January 1997 and 29,913 in January 1998, which are the relative summer population estimates (6). This same survey was conducted for the winter population in which 14,722 Andean Flamingos were counted in July 1998 and 24,442 in July 2000 (6).
