It seems that what most of the accounts on this topic are not taking into 
account is there are a lot more people in aviculture that are interested in 
mutations rather than “wild type” birds.
The market for “wild type” birds would be very small indeed. And considering 
the cost and trouble in getting these two species from the wild – no way would 
anyone bother.
And truly wild caught adult parrots are basically useless as they rarely settle 
enough not to kill themselves against the wire, let alone that the chances of 
breeding from them are almost non-existent. The poachers would have to find 
nests and take eggs/nestlings and hand raise them…
Just my thoughts,
