Elegant Parrots

Belonging to the Neophema Genus this small, but to some, dully coloured parrot has many attributes which make it a good choice when contemplating additions to your collection. In particular I would recommend younger or novice enthusiasts consider keeping this bird or perhaps those who live in suburbia who have small spaces to allocate to their birds and perhaps noise adverse neighbours!

Tambopata Project

My eyes flash open to a cacophony of screeches and roars bellowing through my window. My mind slowly catches up to my senses and I realise, that I am no longer surrounded by the comforts of Australia; rather I have woken up in the heart of the Amazon Basin. I draw back the mosquito net over my bed and greet the boisterous Howler monkeys outside my window that had the nerve to wake me up before my alarm. Despite the rude awakening, I am soon on my way to the most extensively studied clay-lick in South America. By 5:00am I am sitting with a group of international volunteers and researchers, contemplating how ten-year old me would have never believed that I would one day live out my childhood fantasy – to escape to the Amazon jungle and work with macaws
