Andre Saidenberg

Andre is a Brazilian veterinarian with a special interest in avian medicine and other wild animals. He completed his Masters degree working with Microbiology in captive and free-living psittacines in 2008 and and has a PhD on Veterinary Epidemiology working with confiscated birds that are undergoing the release process back into the wild. He has been a volunteer of the WPT since 2007 translating PsittaScene in the Portuguese language and helping WPT to form partnerships in Brazil with conservationists and scientific groups.

Although he does not personally encourage people to have wild animals as pets, he works hard to share information with people about how to give pet parrots a better life in a domestic environment. He has a deep interest in the welfare of captive birds, is dedicated to fighting the illegal trade of parrots, and to conserving nature in Brazil.
