Through the cooperation with the Parrot Protection Society Austria (Arge Papageienschutz), Psitácidos mexicanos A.C. won an important participant and can count on expert advice on questions about aviary construction among others. Donations for us received by our partner in Austria are tax deductible which benefits our supporters.
The Parrot Protection Society Austria has been dedicated to the wellbeing of parrot species for almost 25 years. In addition to educational work on species-appropriate parrot husbandry, the association operates a shelter housing currently 200 parrots. Most of them came from single kept cage conditions into species-appropriate pair or group housing.
The Parrot Protection Society offers a very special service to parrot owners in its shelter: single kept parrots can find their life partners here! Through these socializations stable pairs are formed, because the birds can choose their partner because of the group housing condition.
In Austria it has been prohibited by law since 2005 to keep any parrot species without a companion!
Defenders of Wildlife are sharing their environmental educational material with us! This successful collaboration already originated in the reintroduction project of Scarlet macaws ( Ara macao cyanoptera) in Los Tuxtlas, Veracruz (2012-2014).
Belize Bird Rescue is cooperating with us sharing their knowledge of establishing their rescue shelter in Belmopan, Belize. Since 2004 they are successfully receiving, rehabilitating and liberating parrots and other bird species. The organisation employs several awareness strategies including educational presentations, community outreach programmes, publications, exhibitions and advertising.
