In Memory of

In March 2020, Georgia Fletcher lost her battle with cancer and aviculture lost an advocate for birds everywhere. To honor her, the Quaker Parakeet Society has started a scholarship fund to be awarded to a veterinary student at the University of Illinois who wants to specialize in avian medicine. The scholarship should be awarded in January 2021. If anyone is interested in contributing to the fund, please contact Dr. Patricia Anderson or Janice Lang, at qpsociety@hotmail.com

UPDATE from 1/5/21
HR48 “American Sovereignty and Species Protection Act”

U.S. Representative Biggs (Arizona) has introduced HR48. This is an act to amend the Endangered Species Act to prevent a species that is not native to the United States from being listed as an endangered species or a threatened species, to prohibit certain types of financial assistance, and for other purposes.

HR48 amends the Endangered Species Act by adding this text: “(D) NOT NATIVE SPECIES.—The Secretary may not determine that a species is an endangered species or a threatened species pursuant to section 4 if such species is not native to the United States.”

We need to contact him and support this.
ALL animal owners should support this!
Removing non-native species allows the USFWS to do their jobs more efficiently (the ESA protects native species and their habitats)
American Federation of Aviculture
v. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

As of May 26, 2020, the Golden Conure has been down listed under the U.S. Endangered Species Act. As of May 26, 2020, the Golden conure will be listed as “threatened” and the USFWS has determined that, in order to enhance the conservation of the species, they will be evoking the 4(d) Rule essentially suspending the requirement for federal permits to sell the species across State lines.
