With the permission from Stewart Metz and Bonnie Zimmerman I am going to share with you photos given to me by Stewart. Its time we all face the cruelty these poor magnificant birds face to just survive and the horrific things that are done to them just for the sake of greed. You will see the lucky ones, that because of people like Stewart Metz and Bonnie Zimmerman who have dedicated their lives to try and make a difference, to educate and at time rescue these birds from a sure life of neglect, cruelty and all to often death.
Sadly though you will be faced with pictures of those not so fortunate to be rescued before being put in to substandard and inhuman conditions, abused, neglected. Many of the pictures need no words to describe the conditions the birds are forced to live in.You will see a cockatoo caught in a snare, the fear that it must feel. You will see a crate full on both sides with lories, what you don't see are the cockatoos being smuggled down the middle of the crate. Another picture shows a little box used to smuggled a single cockatoo by a villager, its unbelievable a cockatoo could fit into it never mind survive the horrific trip in front of it.
I ask you to please not turn away, but as hard as it will be please look at the pictures. It is one thing to hear of these terrible things happening to the birds, it another to see. This is what Stewart Metz and Bonnie Zimmerman have been faced with over and over, but because of the love, compassion and convictions, they have never turned their back on these beautiful and intelligent birds. They both work relentlessly to help the birds not only in Indonesia, but for all birds so that they may face a brighter future, one of freedom as it was meant to be.
