The SCA makes it its business to be aware of ALL legislation that may affect any aspect of aviculture. Regular bulletins and newsletters are received from both the Department of the Environment and CITES.
Full CITES listings and any European Union legislation are available to all members for reference. For more detailed information the membership must contact the secretary. The committee of the SCA believes that all members should be aware of every issue surrounding conservation throughout the world. CITES newsletters can be of use when trying to track a certain species of bird for introduction into a breeding program. With co-operation from the Department of the Environment any birds that have been donated to the SCA without full paperwork have had the correct paperwork added to make them legitimate before being introduced into a breeding program. The SCA must work with both government bodies fully to ensure the protection of birds.
We provide on our site extracts of the latest CITES listings. This details the class Aves (Birds) on Appendix I, II and III that are currently subject to CITES restrictions. These lists are taken directly from information available on the CITES official website www.cites.org.Â The current full CITES Appendices is available in the document section of our site.
The following is only a very brief overview of the full CITES regulations. For the full details go to the official CITES website.
