African Grey Parrots need our help to survive.

African Grey Parrots PetitionAfrican Grey Parrots are almost extinct and have become a rare site in the wild. In the past 40 years over 1.3 million Grey Parrots have been legally exported. Many of the birds are poorly treated and die before export, as a result, the true number of parrots take from the wild is estimated at well over 3 million. Shocking!

Recent study in Ghana shows that the African Grey Parrots’ population has declined by 90 – 99% in recent years. Falling number are driving trappers to move into ever more remote areas to find parrots to catch.

Despite collapses in numbers, much of this trade remains legal.

African Grey ParrotsA number of African countries have recognised the crises and are making efforts to give the African Grey Parrots maximum protection under international law.

Later this year at the 17th Conference of the Parties to CITES (CoP17) from around the world will meet in Johannesburg, South Africa. At this conference the parties will decide how wildlife can – and can’t – be traded around the world. Alongside Elephants, Rhinos and Lions, the fate of another iconic African species – The African Grey Parrots – will be decided.

World Parrot Trust will be in attendance at the meeting to support the process; by signing the petition you will add your voice to their support efforts.

Now is the time to ACT and stop the export of African Grey Parrots forever.  The message to CITES is: Move the Grey Parrot to Appendix I and end the trade in wild birds of this Globally Threatened Species.

Thanking you in advance for supporting this cause.
