This just came in with some correspondence from Mira Tweti:

Quote:
CBS News will be airing two segments on the unwanted parrot crisis. The airdate isn't set yet but the segments, to air on CBS Evening News and Sunday Morning shows have been months in the works.

I pitched the idea to correspondent Bill Whitaker who was very receptive. Garuda Aviary, MAARS,Santa Barbara Bird Sanctuary, Parrots First and I were all filmed for the piece.

It'll be the first national news story to break the issue of parrots as challenging pets and the crisis of unwanted birds filling rescues.

As soon as an airdate is set I'll send an email blast!

This is wonderful! So much of this problem is caused because people are totally ignorant (like I was)

Maybe this can be posted on craigslist in different cities in the pet area? For "people interested in getting parrots!"

I don't know if this is it, but CBS news just did an intro that they are doing a segment of people and why they love their parrots. It is going to be on shortly.
