Facebook For Parrot Conservation

The Cape Parrot Project aims to garner support through social networking.

Posted: Wednesday, June 2, 2010 3:30 p.m. PDT

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 to learn more.

Haha. Well, at least facebook is putting itself to good use, right? Like I've always said, those in high power have an obligation to use their prestige for good deeds. If I were famous, I would definitely do the same (Seeing as I still try now, but not as worldly known)
