http://www.10000birds.com interviews a representative of ProFauna Indonesia about the illicit parrot trade, and other things! Be aware that the photographs are very disturbing.

How anyone can read this (and the previous interviews), look at the pictures and still support the bird trade industry is completely beyond my comprehension. Thanks for posting the interview Charlie.

Very sad! They must get tuffer with jail time on the local trappers to deter the trapping!

I think it is good for people to *see* the ugliness of the bird trade so it rings a bell.

Great idea Charlie to repost this. We have been getting so many new people recently who are unaware of just how bad the parrot trade is. I think if we refer them to this thread we will be able to educate them and hopefully sway their mind set.
We've all said it before but Education is the Key!
