Aims of the preservation breeding project
The aim of the breeding book is to care for the
species and subspecies and
blood-purity. The domestic populations shall be preserves or
the genetic variety shall be
A blood exchange with the neighbouring foreign
countries is aspired to
The mutation breeding is not an aim of the preservation breeding project and
Also a “conference about African parrots” is worthwhile to stimulate the
exchange of views among the breeders or breeders and scientists and to
spread innovations in the breeding of birds. The animal health aspect can
and should be considered on these events.
For further information a round letter will appear 3-times a year.
The initiation of open land observations in cooperation of German and
African colleges should be stimulated to gain new knowledge about habits and
population dimensions. This knowledge can then be used for the further work
and development of the preservation breeding project.
The offspring and changes must be transmitted regularly to the project
managers or the data keeper to be able to maintain the statistics.
Through the statements of holdings pairs of the same species and/or
subspecies can be arranged between the breeders, which the new owner should
see, however, only as a proposal. How he pairs his animals remains to him.
The preservation breeding project gives no instructions like the birds
should be held or paired, but makes proposals.
If an interbreeding is at hand the project managers will recommend the
holders to make a new pair.
Furthermore it is considered to make a genetic data base in connection with
the University, which one can use to pair the animals through
molecular-genetic point of view and purely in species- or subspecies.
