114 (3): 437-446 DEC 2003

Abstract:
In some places of the northeastern Peruvian Amazon the harvesting and local trade of parrot nestlings is still a common practice (loreada) that takes place every year between February and April, despite being banned by the national laws. Between 1996 and 1999, 1 monitored the use of these birds in 3890-ha of Mauritia flexuosa-palm swamps, located close to the village of Victoria (Loreto, Peru). Seven species of parrots were collected by local poachers in the study area, with Amazonia amazonica (61.1% of the captures) and Ara ararauna (25.9%) the most commonly harvested.

National Bird Day 2004: New awareness about birds as pets
Monday, January 05 2004 @ 06:34 AM UTC
Contributed by: Admin
Views: 6117
Conservation The Animal Protection Institute (API) in coordination with the Avian Welfare Coalition (AWC) is calling on activists around the U.S. to take action on behalf of captive birds by drawing attention to the exploitation of other country's native birds by the U.S. pet industry on January 5 -- National Bird Day.

"National Bird Day" is not only a good day to take time to appreciate the native wild birds flying free outside our windows, it is also a perfect time to reflect on how we treat the native birds of other countries. While we have enacted laws to protect our native birds -- such as blue jays, cardinals, and crows -- from commercial exploitation, we fail to recognize the inconsistency in allowing the pet industry to exploit the birds of other countries.

Conservation By Charles Seabrook in Manaus, Brazil December 26, 2003

In the heart of Brazil's rainforest, a riverboat nudges up to a trading post along the January river, an Amazon tributary. Children laden with animals quickly converge on the passengers. A girl shows off a bright blue-and-red parrot. Another girl has a two-metre-long snake draped over her shoulders. A boy holds up a sad-eyed monkey. The animals are for sale. When asked where she got the parrot, the first girl - an 11-year-old named Isabel - points to the lush rainforest across the river.
