That'll be another few dozen landing up in rescues in a few years. You need to make this clear in your talks and if people really want one to bypass breeders and adopt.
Maybe you could take a leaflet with a local parrot rescue details on and pass it around during your talks.

I think it's great to help raise money but careful not to stress your bird . You say there are no rescues around there , do you know how far is the closest one? Do they have animal control centers there like we do over here? Just curious about how things are done over there in the pet industry. BW
