Help the Grey Parrots

Thursday, December 22, 2016

The CITES decision to end commercial trade in wild-caught Grey and Timneh parrots, and the subsequent uplisting to Endangered by the IUCN caps off a remarkable year of change.

Your past support for these two iconic parrots has been phenomenal and it’s helped us make huge strides forward. With our local and international partners we’ve supported the collection of critical information on their numbers in the wild, and uncovered the true scale of trade in the Congo basin. We have worked tirelessly to get this data to the right people, making sure that proper action is taken to protect these birds.
