Stop the Illegal Bird Trade

In Latin America thousands of wild parrots are illegally caught and traded every year despite national laws and international trade agreements. High levels of exploitation are causing local population declines in the most sought-after species and are contributing to the declines of already globally threatened species

To stop this = don’t get a pet bird.

Get one from a sanctuary if you want to help or sponsor a sanctuary.(If you can’t get one from a sanctuary, don’t get a bird at all.)

Because if you get it from somewhere other than a sanctuary you help the illegal trade with that.
