Dear Janice and others,

      A few months ago some of you expressed interest in forming a group to investigate the practices used in removing parrots.  I wonder if you could give an update to this group as to your progress or any meetings?  How can we help?

     Yours,

    LoraKim Joyner
    Acting Secretary

I am working on a project for another organization to which I belong on this topic. Anyone who would like to review, participate, discuss culling and avian welfare issues in a scholarly and scientific manner please message me privately and put "parrot culling" in the subject line so I know to open it. Please include literature citations if you have them. I will gladly share here on PRG when the project is completed.
Thanks

Dear Lora-Kim, 
TribuNoah is setting up its fieldstation in a remote location with limited acces to electricity/utilities.
We will have our solar power system set-up soon and be fully operational again next year (2022). 
A few pictures are included. 
The area seems to have many parrot food trees and various parrot species & flocks. 
The attitude of the local population towards the birds is being assessed.
A biodiversity species list is being compiled.
Always seeking funds, volunteers, advice and vetrinary assistance. 
The idea is to model a "garden of eden" in the forest but due to limited gas-cilinder distribution, people have resorted 
to cutting the trees down for burning/cooking. This ofcourse diminishes the feasibility of the plan. 

Greets, 
Janice@TribuNoah
Will send the finalized version of our work towards ethical alternatives to parrot culling asap.

Dear Janice,

 Thanks for the update of your work there.

  I will be in Suriname November 8th - 15th. Perhaps we can meet up at your pleasure?

  Yours,

Hi Lora-Kim, 

Happy New Year!!!!
You were in Suriname!
How cool.
Was it about parrots? 
Too bad I did not get to meet up with you. 
It was very busy at the field-station : animal trouble  & people/ culture disputes and forest spirits tribulation and so on.  
Its a tough job. 

For now I am focusing on buying another piece of tiny forest for animal rescues, building a temporary holding pen and searching for funds (a list of funds) to persuade the forest owners to sell their land for forest conservation instead of clearing it for agriculture or residential building construction. 

How is the planning for your initiatives in guyana? 

Your Fan, 

Janice
