Heroic actions of several wildlife organizations and the generosity of WPT supporters has helped a group of African Grey parrots to get a second chance. But the work is nowhere near done. Many of the parrots still require ongoing help.
Over one thousand parrots seized...
Local authorities were faced with a large problem when shipments of African Grey parrots were seized in two high profile raids at a Cameroon airport. Originally destined for Mexico and parts of the Middle East, the parrots were instead sent to the Limbe Wildlife Centre for rehabilitation. Their arrival placed a hefty burden on the centre's already overworked staff, who turned to the World Parrot Trust for help.
