I see we don’t have a topic on the wild bird trade in this forum. In any case bad news from Peru. They have again set quota’s for export…

Wow, that is way too many birds and many more will die so they can get THOSE ones that are being exported.  What is wrong with people?  And since the only markets for wild caught parrots is Asia and the Middle East those poor birds will have crappy lives too.  Just leave them alone!

1 sold = 5 died in capture, transport and at middle men.

But indeed an important part of this equation is consumer demand.

Consumer demand should equal zero.  Then they’ll be no more poaching.

I don’t know what you mean by ABOLITION. Sounds rigorous though…

Indeed the legal bird trade has often been used to cover-up illegal trade. Which makes any trade unsustainable.
