for them. I did not know that they are gender conscious!!! I have done a little reading on them but... They are to have microchips (ID) put in January. The rescue that we help chip all of the animals

Captive bred and banded will help. As I understand it, you can get CITIES approval for wild rescuses, but its more difficult. The wild caught Amazon we adopted is of course not banded, but the African Grey and Green Wing McCaw are both banded and have traveled extensively (esp the Grey who cruised with us).
The chips will help also. Some places, like the Caymans, require them.
and actual enforcement vary a lot from country to country, but its best to be prepared per the official law. We prepared many times per law only to find officials on the ground who could care less (better than the opposite).
