People, Parrots and Conservation
Summary
Create Conservation Project/Cause - People, Parrots and Conservation | Pat Latas
Purpose/Mission: 
Protecting parrots, Planet: Communities and Nature 100% proceeds will go to One Earth Conservation One Earth Conservation’s work is grounded in the acknowledgment of a system of exploitation and domination which harms and oppresses many forms of life. Parrots and the humans they share land with suffer at the intersection of multiple harms which indicate a society in need of restructuring around the following principles: All individuals of all species have inherent worth and dignity. All are connected to each other in worth, beauty and well-being. We are also connected in harm. What is done to one is done to all of us. Villains are in turn victims. None are free until all are free. Humans are adaptable and can change, both individually and as families, organizations, communities, and societies. Humans need each other and other species to grow and heal. We can grow through embracing our belonging to earth and the life upon it. We can nurture nature in return.

"One Earth Conservation promotes parrot well-being in the Americas by conducting transformative parrot conservation, taking action to end the wildlife trade, and encouraging in people a strong sense of human connection to all life that results in the well-being of all.

One Earth Conservation’s work is grounded in the acknowledgment of a system of exploitation and domination which harms and oppresses many forms of life. Parrots and the humans they share land with suffer at the intersection of multiple harms which indicate a society in need of restructuring around the following principles:

 All individuals of all species have inherent worth and dignity. All are connected to each other in worth, beauty and well-being.

We are also connected in harm. What is done to one is done to all of us. Villains are in turn victims. None are free until all are free.

Humans are adaptable and can change, both individually and as families, organizations, communities, and societies.

Humans need each other and other species to grow and heal. We can grow through embracing our belonging to earth and the life upon it. We can nurture nature in return.
     
It’s our sincere belief that the lives of all humans and animals have inherent worth and dignity and that the well-being of all is of ultimate importance. We must fight for the health and freedom of all birds around the world, whether a nestling falling from a tree or a captive elderly parrot in the United States.

We support our staff, volunteers, and partners across the Americas by continuously seeking to deconstruct systems of domination and oppression within ourselves, our practices, and our projects."

Background: 

One Earth Conservation's work is about relationships - we love the parrots and we love working with the people. Our projects are having an impact on people’s lives by raising incomes and providing them with meaningful work. At the same time, we are increasing our knowledge about parrots, which improves conservation results. One Earth Conservation has also been able to leverage our increased knowledge to gain more partners for this work and to impact other parrot conservation projects being conducted throughout the world.

Project activities often include conducting parrot patrols to protect nesting parrots from poachers and other harmful activities, climbing trees to monitor nesting activities and the status of eggs and hatched chicks, installing nest boxes to encourage wild parrots to reproduce, implementing public education campaigns to raise awareness about the plight of wild parrots and how people can help, and collecting and analyzing data to be used to report results to scientists, the general public, and funders.
