A Facebook page hopes to gain support for conservation efforts.
Conservation efforts on Facebook aim to grow support for the Cape Parrot Project. Dr. Rutledge Steve Boyes, DST/NRF Centre of Excellence Postdoctoral Fellow, Percy FitzPatrick Institute of African Ornithology, University of Cape Town, South Africa, created an online parrot conservation community on Facebook to draw attention to the project.
The Facebook group already has more than 2,250 members and is established as one of the largest parrot groups on the network. Go to www.africaskyblue.org to learn more.
