The Future

It may seem to the general public that conservation within aviculture is a very limited way of saving birds from extinction. However, conservation, co-operation and education can work hand-in-hand to save a species. With the SCA targeting the private individual and stimulating them into a conservation "mode", many species that are with us today will continue to thrive in captivity and may be re-introduced into the wild when required.

Obviously, the SCA would like to play a pivotal role in this action. The SCA sees itself as a leading organisation that will be able to mediate between the public and established conservation projects. This can only be achieved as the SCA grows in stature and must ensure that the correct finances are available to complete projects as they become necessary. To conserve species we must be prepared to learn from our mistakes.

We now have many advantages over the conservationists of 20-30 years ago. The advent of DNA and surgical sexing has given us the tools to improve our chances of success. The SCA would like to see conservation of many species starting NOW, rather than pick up the pieces when the birds become nearly EXTINCT!!.

Many conservation topics require adequate funding before they can even be considered viable. The awareness and research of diseases and problems causing deaths within breeding programs must also be tackled.

Sponsorship has to play a major role in the objectives of the SCA. Without money, materials and awareness from companies and individuals, future plans for the society would not be possible.
