As part of its commitment to parrots and their welfare, and under the terms of its constitution as a charitable organisation, The Parrot Society UK sets aside a percentage of its funds to support financially several worthwhile conservation projects around the world.
At present several projects are regularly supported – Scarlet macaws in Costa Rica, the 'tinning' of trees to protect cockatoo nest sites in Australia, corn supplementation to aid Lear's macaws in Brazil, Grey-breasted parakeets (conures), the Vinaceous Amazon parrot, and the Reserve Ecologica de Guapiacu (REGUA) also all in Brazil.
Criteria for support
Projects employing avicultural techniques and expertise as well as habitat restoration measures are to be preferred. The PSUK also works in partnership with other organisations, such as the World Parrot Trust. However the PS should not accept proposals which involve financially supporting infra-structure for eco-tourism. This is a matter for the businesses involved. The support of such projects should enhance the reputation of the Parrot Society. All supported projects should provide regular feedback reports, preferably with photographic material to be published in the Society’s magazine.
