Could You Be A Back Garden Parrot Conservationist? Part Two

Spreads for web 3

By Jim Hayward Jnr

In this second part of Jim Hayward Jnr’s article, he continues to suggest how dedicated hobbyists can play an important role in saving our planet by utilising their back gardens.

Can small back garden breeders play such an important role as zoos in conservation work?  If they specialise in one or two species, the answer is yes.  Zoos are often at a disadvantage in many ways.  First, zoos make their living mainly from exhibiting, but many parrots don't appreciate the constant attention and noise, and consequently won't breed, or take years to settle before they will breed. Exhibition aviaries are also too open so visitors can view birds, but this doesn't offer protection from the elements or from predatory hawks.
