7th International Parrot Convention

7th International Parrot Convention
Loro Parque, Tenerife
Canary Islands
20 - 28 September 2010

This is a quadrennial event and really important for anyone interested in parrot conservation and husbandry. This year for the first time there will be a scientific convention from the evening of 20th September to 22nd September. The main convention, the 7th in the series, will run from the evening of 22nd September to 25th September inclusive. The workshops will be held from 26th to 28th September although I understand the one on 26th September is now booked out.

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.
