 Globetrotting Parrots Return to Africa

Tuesday, July 23, 2013
Threatened African Grey Parrots were returned to the wild after a three-year intercontinental odyssey.  One hundred and eight of these beautiful birds were seized from an illegal shipment in Bulgaria back in 2010.  Immediately handed over to the Sofia Zoo for much needed medical treatment, their uncertain status was meanwhile being determined by the local courts.  

After a lengthy process, a ground breaking initiative was derived and the birds were finally returned to the area of their historic range.
