There are many people who claim to be rescue organizations. We find out about these rescues. DO NOT adopt from them If a) They wont give you their phone #. b) seems like they don't quarantine c) ask for a high payment and worse. If you are not sure, please contact us. We have a lot of information and do not wish to disparage anyone publicly.
If you believe you are an "average" parrot owner, and that the AFA is not for you, then what you don't know can truly hurt you. The AFA is working tirelessly to have parrot species de-listed from the ESA (Endangered Species Act), that we are protecting YOUR right to continue to own the birds they already have, that we educate, work for conservation of species in native habitats, and that we have a great magazine, a fun filled and educational conference and a disaster relief program that is particularly helpful to us locally should a hurricane hit here. That's just the tip of the iceberg. AFA is our way to remain unified in the face of crazy Animal Rights groups and the greater our numbers, the louder our voice. Visit www.afabirds.org now.
