Chester Zoo Lecture Theatre

PhD student, Harry Marshall, will talk about his research and findings about Indonesian birds and the culture of keeping them as a pet.

Many songbird species are declining at alarming rates across South-East Asia, precipitating an ‘Asian Songbird Crisis’, and Indonesia is considered the biggest source of both supply and demand driving songbird declines. Harry will discuss the Asian songbird Crisis and its drivers, and how his PhD research will contribute to attempts to reduce demand, and increase the sustainability of songbird-keeping in South-East Asia.

NOW is the time to ACT FOR WILDLIFE. Conservation is CRITICAL; species are under threat. TOGETHER we can make a BIG difference. Take action TODAY and join us in PREVENTING EXTINCTION.
