This afternoon I was invited to an international online meeting with a group of students about various parakeet species.
We discussed a number of recent research results on colour mutations. But the main purpose of this meeting was to investigate how we can maintain, in aviculture, the wild type.
It was very interesting and further proof that a lot of young people are interested and active in aviculture, without being active in exhibiting birds and bird societies.
In other words, there is still a future for aviculture, but it will continue in a slightly different way from what we know today.
Thanks for the invitation, it was really great!!!
