Links to Useful Parrot and Parakeet Sites
There is so much information about everything to do with parrots and parakeets on the internet. As with many things on the internet, it can be hard to know which information is credible. Sorting through the mountain of information can be a little overwhelming, especially if you are new to parrots. We thought it would be useful if we linked you to some of our favourite parrot and parakeet sites, forums, and societies.
The Parrot Society
The Parrot Society UK aims to be the world’ premier association providing help and expert advice to members and non-members on the welfare and conservation of all parrot species.
The Avicultural Society
The society is concerned with all types of birds other than domesticated varieties. Members include most top aviculturalists, leading zoos, bird gardens, conservation groups and research institutes.
National Council for Aviculture
This organisation is the umbrella organisation for all cage bird enthusiasts catering for the British, Budgerigar, Canary and Foreign Bird Fancies. Its prime objective is to promote the welfare, study, breeding, development and exhibition of birds within a managed environment.
Foreign Bird League
One of the Foreign Bird League’s main objectives is to promote the keeping and breeding of all types of Foreign Birds while representing our interests to government, providing a larger, more influential, voice than individual birdkeepers and societies would have.
