The majority of humans are indeed like a deadly virus to earth and her creatures….(Selfish) breeders and keepers are responsible for the demand.Without them, there would be no trade and suffering!
NEW ARRIVALS: We’ve just received a large confiscation of African Grey Parrots from an illegal trader in Douala. The parrots are in extremely poor condition, with many being critically ill (and one dead upon arrival), and are currently receiving emergency care from our veterinary team. http://www.limbewildlife.org
90% of the illegally caught birds die before
they come into the pet shop or reach the breeder.
So please do not consider to get a pet bird unless it is from a bird sanctuary or a man made breed like many types of canaries for example…And even then, they need space to fly and other species of their family around them.To stick them as a single in a cage is like a life long prison sentence in isolation for humans , in compare.
We are continuing to give emergency care to the 67 African Greys that arrived Friday afternoon. They are in the worst shape of any parrots we have received, many with wounds and all extremely thin. Even with immediate care, due to their poor condition, five parrots died shortly after their arrival. Those in the worst condition are in hospitalization, while the others are in a stabilization period to allow them to adapt to their new environment. http://www.limbewildlife.org
