The Avian Preservation Foundation


    The Avian Preservation Foundation is a charitable private foundation (Registration #0864702-52) governed by the executive members of the A.A.C.C. dedicated to the preservation of all birds through a combination of aviculture and scientific study in the field.

    OBJECTS

    1. To support recognized aviculturists who are endeavouring to breed rare and endangered avian species to ensure their future preservation.

    2. To establish a Canadian breeding centre for rare and endangered avian species.

    3. To establish a monitoring body for captive avian stocks in Canada through the use of surveys and computer software.

    4. To create and maintain a breeding program throughout Canada for avian species currently listed as endangered and build up a captive blood stock in order to breed populations of these birds to be reintroduced to their natural habitat. Where it is obviously impractical or impossible to reintroduce birds into the wild due to ever shrinking habitat, the A.P.F. will fund sanctuaries such as zoos and bird parks where rare birds can live in a near natural setting and create more public awareness of the continuing dilemma of endangered species.

    5. To create a captive preservation program for rare and endangered species within zoo, bird parks and sanctuaries where reintroduction into the natural habitat is not possible or practical.

    We would be very pleased to receive notification of any worthwhile projects. Our current programs include funding research in the Solomon Islands, affiliation payment to the AACC for non-profit societies that fulfill the above objects and payment to veterinarian students to further their education. If you know of any projects you believe should be funded, please write to Mr. Jeremy Faria, APF President, at the address below or e-mail faria55@rogers.com
