> The Scarlet Macaw project in Costa Rica is a conservation exercise that PSUK has supported for many years now, and goes from strength to strength. Dr Chris Vaughan's latest update (February 2024) is posted on the page, together with links to nest box cameras. Well worth a look! - The Scarlet Macaw in Costa Rica

> Since Brexit, it has become increasingly difficult to move birds legally from the UK to the EU and vice versa. This had led to an increase in illegal transportation, with all the risks that this entails, in terms of bringing in infectious diseases, etc. Cage & Aviary Birds this week (December 13th 2023) published an interesting article on the subject, which basically confirms that the importation of pet parrots and parakeets is effectively impossible, if done legitimately. PSUK is a member of the Companion Animal Sector Council (CASC), and through that body has already had, and will continue to have, significant meetings with policy advisors at Defra, in an attempt to clarify and simplify the procedure. This will be an uphill struggle, and it is very unlikely that much change will take place before the next general election, but rest assured that PSUK is doing all we can to assist in this difficult situation on your behalf.
