This is important news-Wish there was some way of licencing them as pets and monitoring people breeding them
May not be entirely green but sure beats going extinct.
I believe that fall back positions like this may be esential even if we have to sell avairies of them via Wallmart

This is an example of what I mean by "ecocide." Very sad. Thank you for postin it, Cal.

“If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man.
All things are connected.
Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth.”

Amateur bird watchers truly have discovered many last surviving strongholds of multitudes of species and have not only noted behavioral aspects, but also dietary diversity previously unknown. The Audubon Society's membership consists of numerous amateurs. Climate change is accelerated by environmental change. We need to stop cutting down the forest and damaging and diverting natural springs. As we rape the environment more and more, the blight of clear-cutting is spreading like a pestilence with the chain reaction of death as a direct result. If we don't act now, one day there will be no more beauty and birdsong left in the world. I don't agree that many people believe birds migrate away from areas which cannot sustain them. More and more people now realize that most birds have found their niche and fail to thrive elsewhere.

This is sad, scary and infuriating all at the same time!
