1. Keep yourself informed

Understanding the problem of endangered species and discussing it with family and friends is an excellent way to start helping spread the word.

Keep yourself informed and following us on Facebook and Instagram and by visiting related websites.

2. Report traffickers

At least half the wild birds trapped by traffickers die during capture and transportation to points of sale. If you do not report the individuals engaged in these types of activities you automatically become accomplice to their crimes. Report them to the appropriate authority.

In Mexico you can use the Procuraduría Federal de Protección al Ambiente (PROFEPA) website.

3. DO NOT encourage the illegal pet trade

Supply of trapped wild birds will exist as long as demand exists. If you wish to have a pet bird, make sure they are born and bred in legal, licensed aviaries. Demand to see official documents of proof.

You should preferably buy couples, since solitude may cause serious emotional disorders and even death to the birds. Consider that parrots can live well over 50 years, and require large spaces to be able to fly and shelter from the weather. Make sure an expert shows you how to take care of them. If you cannot provide adequate care, please do NOT buy them.

DO NOT BUY MEXICAN PARROTS! This is a major offense.

4. Take part in environmental campaigns

 The most serious threat to birds is the destruction of their habitat. By taking part in environmental campaigns by other organizations such as Greenpeace, you will be helping combat the problems facing birds. Protecting forests with a culture that encourage respect for the environment and a sustainable use of natural resources it the only way to save endangered species and their ecosystems.

5. Help support TXORI

TXORI Ornithological Foundation is able to run research and conservation programs thanks solely to the contributions of people like you, who are interested in preserving endangered species for future generations.
