Purple Rain

What can harm this creature or plant? Are we worried about it?:

The International Union for Conservation of Nature has put this type of jacarandá on their red list and declared it a vulnerable species. Its native lands are the most threatened forest ecosystem in Argentina; in fact, less than 37% of its native territory remains! Imagine if your entire neighborhood, where you live and play and roam about, were reduced to just a few houses. Big business interests have degraded the land with unplanned extractive logging and rapid conversions to agriculture. Sometimes when living in a big city it is easy to forget that we depend on nature. Let us dare to remember!
