You know that the CRPL, Lwiro Primates (in the Democratic Republic of Congo), helps gray parrots recover; these parrots come from the illegal trade of species. Some weeks ago, another mild release was made; 18 parrots were placed in an acclimatization zone. Here they can enter and exit freely, and they are given food for weeks until they become independent.
The gray parrots pay a high price for their social nature. They sleep together on branches. Poachers fill with glue these branches, and that’s how they capture them. Most of them perish due to the wounds made by the glue. SOS Primates condemns the illegal trade of protected species and doesn’t support the keeping of wild animals as pets, including parrots.
We thank the CRPL team and all of the persons that make rehabilitation possible. It gives us hope.
If you support SOS Primates, you’re making possible these realities. Check out the different options that we suggest so you can lend us a hand.
Have a nice Sunday!
