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.
This is available throughout the year and is manned by a knowledgeable volunteer, sometimes it will be an ansa machine, but all messages will be replied to.
The Society has many experienced supporters interested in all species of birds. Our help line is not only there to provide a secure future for a bird, but we can give advice about care, behaviour and dietary needs, and also conservation. The Society also has contacts with Governing Bodies and Specialist Societies should this information be required and the Society is recognised by both the R.S.P.C.A and R.S.P.B. In addition we are able to advise on the Department of Environment CITES regulations.

¬†The S.C.A Safe Holding Homes
The SCA are developing a network of Safe Holding homes for the birds that come into our care. These will be the temporary sanctuaries that birds will be placed initially, assessed and kept until a more permanent home can be found that best meets the birds requirements. These small sanctuaries will be managed by individual members of the society, anyone who is interested in having one of these sanctuaries can apply to the trustees, funding can be made available to help set the holding home up.
All birds remain the property of The SCA at all times and will never be sold to any third party.
