Thank you everyone. This is indeed an organisation devoted to the captive breeding of exotic birds. One must ask oneself where do they get their breeding stock? Many must ultimately go back to trade that is in clear contravention of CITES. I am glad I did not give them any assistance, nor will I.

I was approached by the editor of this magazine asking for permission to use one of my images. It so happened, fortunately, I had not saved a RAW version of the image they requested and was unable to give/sell a printable version. However, it seems to me this is a bunch of people (private individuals?) who breed exotic birds in captivity, among which a number of Australian species feature.
I would be most uncomfortable about encouraging such an organisation, but would be glad if someone who can actually READ what they say can tell me what they are about.
