We are a diverse group of researchers, educators and aviculturists. Using problem based research, we assist with avian conservation programs throughout the world. We also incorporate an education component in our programs by providing hands on training and educational seminars. This has helped local communities set up cottage beekeeping industries and helped local school children learn about the environment. To help bring the lessons of parrot conservation home, we are using data and real world examples from our projects to create classroom activities for students. These activities have been used in both high school and university classrooms.
