Parrots in Peril

They’re social, intelligent, and their ability to mimic all kinds of sounds, including human speech, has made them hugely popular as pets. But today, African grey parrots are paying the price for their appeal. Criminal trafficking networks are wiping them from the wild to fuel the illegal pet trade. It’s one of the critical situations in Central Africa that we need your help to address.
