Amazing program. I just hope the people that need to see it, did see it. We have a similar problems with reptiles....reptiles that live a long time and outlive their owners or their owners get tired of them, etc. Many reptiles are not suitable at all for captivity, especially by the uneducated public. We try to get that point across at educational events that we participate in.
We try to give people alternatives....if you like birds and reptiles, then work or volunteer at a sanctuary and enjoy them in that way or volunteer for studies going on in the wild to do surveys and clean up habitats, build nesting boxes for wild birds, etc.
