I would like to raise money, for Mehd Halaouate , who is living in Indonesia, and is helping the confiscated wild caught parrots, to get better again, so they can be released back to the wild. This all cost a lot of money for aviaries, food, plane tickets, employee, medical costs, ect... He already is working for World Parrot Trust, and get some money to do this, but isn't enough to cover all the expense. Therefore I would like to help him, as I also keep birds, and think animal care is very important, Certainly when I see how they keep them in Asia it makes me very sad and mad. I can not change there minds of how they should be keeping them, But I can help in collecting money, so the illegal trapped birds get back to the wild, so they don't get chained or kept in very small cages. And yes you also can donate to World Parrot Trust, but as I know many breeders don't support this organization no more, I decided to raise money directly to the person in the field.
I don't have an end goal of how much we should raise, but as there is money to be earnt by (illegal) trapping, it will continu and therefore we can not raise enough for releasing them back to the wild.
There was just a new release on Bacan Islands, Moluccas. 30 White cokatoos, 9 electus parrots and 10 chattering lories Also last week again 14 smuggled black-capped lories being confiscated.
