I came across this on the Gabriel Foundation website. The video footage of BF Amazon babies being stolen from their nests, force fed, etc is VERY UPSETTING but it is unfortunatley, reality. Even with CITES in Canada and the USA, Europe still captures and imports wild birds with little regulations if none at all. angry

Please see below:
Stop Import of Wild Caught Birds!

Help! Parrots are going extinct! Sign the petition on the Internet!

94 species, one third of the total number of species of parrot are threatened with extinction! Still, every year, the European Union allows for thousands of parrots to be imported into Europe, 6 out of 10 die along the way. This form of animal cruelty has no place in the 21st century. Please sign the petition of the Dutch Parrot Welfare Trust against the trade in wild caught parrots.

Please forward this petition to all your animal loving friends!

This site is in Dutch, but you can figure out where the petition is pretty easily. Look for STOP DE IMPORT VAN PAPEGAAIEN UIT DE NATUUR!

This petition has been circulating for many months and it is done via the "World Parrot Trust" in the UK. You will find their website by going to the US location . I haven`t got their site off hand, but look it up via search engine.
The European Block is still importing Parrots from all Continents that will ship. That includes Africa as well as South America. angry
