Objectives

The objectives of the SCA are quite clear:

  • (i) To advance the education of the public by promoting the study and conservation of all avian species including the establishment of breeding programmes with particular emphasis on preserving highly endangered species.
  • (ii) To advance the education of the public in all aspects of aviculture and the responsible stewardship and care of captive exotic birds.
  • (iii) For the benefit of the public to provide shelter for unwanted, abused or abandoned birds with the purpose of providing care, rehabilitation, re-homing or a permanent sanctuary for those birds unsuitable for re-homing.
  • The education of the public is regarded at paramount within the SCA. Without the assistance of the public the Society would not be able to attempt such ambitious topics of conservation. To this end the Society produces a quarterly magazine outlining many conservation topics currently being continued in the United Kingdom and various parts of the world.

    The SCA has close links with the 'bird press', so it is able to educate the public and other interested parties to the benefit of all avian species. Links within the scientific world is also vital. Aiding in developing conservation research techniques, disease research and possible cures for all species. Study of the classification of species is still required, so that we become able to understand the bird's role within eco-systems and what possible losses these situations may lead to.

    Close links have been established with the RSPB and the RSPCA. Offering advice to pet owner's questions and problems. A limited form of counselling is also offered to some owners, especially in circumstances where a pet has been unexpectedly lost or if the bird needs to undergo veterinary procedures.

    Rescuing and re-homing is playing an increasing role within aviculture and The SCA have rescued many hundreds of birds from all over the United Kingdom.
