A Proposal to Ban the Importation
of Wild-caught Birds into the European Union

A Campaign of the World Parrot Trust

One of the strongest messages we can send to the European Union is the fact that there are thousands of people from Europe and around the world who feel that it's time to stop capturing birds from the wild. The process is cruel and represents the unacceptable exploitation of the natural resources of developing countries. The EU has now become the largest importer of wild caught birds and the existing legislation in Europe is ineffective at stopping the inhumane and unsustainable harvesting of these wild birds.

Although we plan to take several approaches to see this campaign through to its rightful conclusion, you can help a great deal by simply signing the petition below to add your voice to thousands of others in support of our goal of allowing wild birds to remain where they belong ... in the wild.


Please take a moment to fill out the petition at
http://www.worldparrottrust.org/trade/tradeform.htm
and make your voice heard.

Thank you very much for your support on this critical issue.
