Where the Wild Greys Are: A Day in the Life of Africa's Grey Parrots by Diana May, Valerie Hovetter & James Gilardi - For hundreds of years, African Grey parrots have been trapped and exported from West Africa to be kept as pets in Europe and elsewhere, leading to potential extinction in the wild. This DVD from the World Parrot Trust shows scenes of wild greys feeding and gathering. It also shows how they are trapped for the pet trade. Though potentially disturbing to watch, this is certainly a part of these birds' lives that we cannot ignore. Your purchase can help stop the trapping of this well-loved species. All proceeds go to our dedicated fund for African Grey parrots. This DVD version also contains 'Macaw Blues: A Postmortem for the Glaucous Macaw,' a historical study of one of the New World's most beautiful extinct birds and how to avoid the tragic loss of future parrot species.
