PARROT SOCIETY CONSERVATION PROJECTS


ARTICLE BY: TONY PITTMAN A


Conservation Sub-committee under the chairmanship of Council member Tony Pittman was set up four years ago to set criteria for supporting projects and consider proposals received for submission to Council. It was agreed that on the whole supported projects should be long-term and on-going. It was also agreed that projects employing avicultural techniques and expertise as well as habitat restoration measures should be preferred. The PSUK should also consider working in partnership with other organisations. However the PSUK should not accept proposals, which involved financially supporting infra-structure for eco-tourism. This


was a matter for the businesses involved.


Also discussed at this meeting was whether projects in countries with a GDP similar or greater than the UK should be supported. This would affect projects in countries such as Australia and New Zealand. It was finally agreed that projects in such countries would be given lower priority.


The funding for projects derives from the interest on the legacy to the PSUK from the late Council member John Mollindinia supplemented with some of the Gift Aid monies received from the UK tax authorities thanks to Garry Steptowe’s hard work in preparing the claim documentation.
