Greetings! Welcome to the Parrot Researchers Group!
We are proud to be a diverse and dynamic group of people working in all aspects of psittacine research.
The PRG’s primary function is to provide communications amongst researchers. This is not a group for pet owners, aviary, sanctuary or rescue of parrots. There are many other options for those topics, and if the applicant wishes, we may be able to supply pertinent links.
Please join the PRG on Google to access and participate in diverse discussions. There is no charge for membership but your application will be reviewed by the Steering Committee for approval.

Parrot Outcome Study
Parrot Conservation Outcomes Survey
Little is known about what project and species-level factors contribute to positive (and negative) outcomes in parrot conservation. As a result, our group of researchers has created the Parrot Conservation Outcomes survey to collect information on the types of conservation actions undertaken and the characteristics of the target parrot populations to determine what factors are associated with conservation successes. We invite the leaders of current and past parrot conservation projects to participate by taking this ~30 min survey :
