this oneWelcome!

I’d like to dedicate this site to all the precious Companion Birds in Australia.

I am a Bird Behaviourist and Educator and Bird Welfare Campaigner.

I also manage private funded Agapi’s Sanctuary, which is Australia’s first Holistic Bird Sanctuary, where I rescue and adopt birds to live in my forever home.

Amongst our daily turmoils, sometimes humans forget that we share this planet with birds and not just human beings.

We may forget the impact all our actions have on Non-Numan Animals especially companion birds.

My passion is Parrots/Birds and their welfare- as I’m sure many of you out there love them just as much as I do.

This site is about:

  • informing the Australian public of up-to-date news  and general information about companion birds
  • educating the Australian public of companion bird behaviour
  • exposing the ongoing abuse of companion birds in Australia
  • promoting Australian bird welfare laws to protect companion birds in Australia.

I have a passion to educate and inform you further of how to care & love  Companion Birds (including their physical and emotional well being).

My aim is also to meet online with like minded bird lovers and caregivers and collectively share knowledge and campaign against the increasing Companion Bird abuse in Australia:  the shocking and unacceptable  abuse whilst keeping Companion Birds in homes, breeder facilities and pet shops like one would keep wilting flowers in a florist.

So this is what this site is about- ….

Ban Birds Sales & Breeding in Australia from Paris Yves Read on Vimeo.

Paris Yves Read from Melbourne, Australia has been campaigning to Ban Bird breeding and bird selling in Australia. This bird industry abuses and disregards the emotions and welfare of birds. There are thousands of backyard and commercial bird mills/farms all over Australia- Time that the breeders/sellers stopped! Time that the Australian State Governments introduced laws to protect all Birds!

Birds have parallet capacities to people related to mental functions:
  • Human-bird-brain-crop-thinking & cognition
  • feelings
  • emotions
  • equal & lasting relationships
  • dreams and aspirations
