Dear Parrots magazine,

You must walk away

I have spoken to many people who have given accounts of birds in shops and garden centres that looked so sad and unhappy. And many have said they had to buy the birds to ‘save’ them.

Well, this all sounds great and caring from decent people. But just think. As soon as the bird you have ‘rescued’ goes home with you, another will take its place in the shop so, despite the heartache and sadness you might suffer, by rescuing a bird will cause more suffering to others.
