About Us

What is The SCA?

The Society for Conservation in Aviculture (S.C.A) was formed in 1993, when a need became apparent to start to conserve avian species before they were lost forever.  The Society aims to promote and develop all species and varieties of birds kept by aviculturists, with special regard to threatened and endangered species both in the wild and in captivity.

With ever increasing demands being placed on the earth, some species of birds are becoming increasingly at risk. Action must be taken now to ensure that aviculture plays its part in the conservation of such species. Everyone can help in some way.

 Our prime concern at all times is for the future survival and welfare of all birds. The officers of the society play an active role in promoting responsible care and ownership of all birds.

 Anyone who has a concern for the wellbeing and future conservation of all birds should join. You do not need to be a bird keeper yourself to join. Likewise, pet bird owners or the serious aviculturalist are all welcome to join.

Conservation

Extinction in the dictionary is defined as "Complete Destruction or Annihilation". It has been estimated that many small bird species will become extinct in the very near future. 100 Species are likely to become extinct in the next 5-10 years. 200 Species are likely to become extinct in the next 50 years. 400 Species are likely to be extinct in the next 100 years. These figures just cover the small birds, so what of the others?

Counselling

Counselling for the owners can cover many and varied situations. It may start as soon as the owner has purchased the bird either from a pet shop or from a dealer. In general we have found that when the general public "impulse" buy a pet bird, they very rarely take the time to study the species. When counselling the owners has been necessary, the Basic Care Leaflets have also been used and often sent to them free of charge.

Education

Conservation and education covers many areas and forms, local, shires, country and international; they must both work hand in hand with adults and children. Birds in general pray a major part in the ecology and stability of the environment.

Education of the "youth of today" is becoming increasingly important, with regards to conservation. With our current "throw away society", many under 16's are now beginning to see the value and need for conservation projects. Their thoughts are now not just aimed at local conservation but are becoming broader, even "world wide". Through education the SCA intend to see the younger generation becoming more involved with the problems of their planet. Schools are doing a major part of this education for conservation of species, but with their limited resources they are not able to present a practical picture of the conservation needed, especially with birds.
