I have just been informed by Loro Parque that it has decided to cancel the 1st International Convention on the Conservation of Psittacidae, which was scheduled from 20th to 22nd September because of lack of numbers. It appears the global financial situation is biting particularly hard on the scientific and conservation organisations. The main convention - the VII International Parrot Convention - from 22nd to 25th September as well as the workshops will take place as scheduled.
