WPA survey of captive birds 2017

The forms for the WPA captive survey of Galliformes are available in two formats:
PDF Format: Galliformes species survey 2017

Excel Format: Galliformes species survey 2017

Many thanks for completing and returning your form in previous years. The information you sent us last year was extremely helpful as it continues to add to records about the status of captive Galliformes in the UK, consequently allowing us to determine what necessary action might be needed and provide recommendations to breeders about stock levels. We would really like your help again this year to record the birds that were in your collection on 31 August 2017.

Please post or email the results back to WPA HQ or Nigel Hester. Or if you don’t want to use the form, simply put the information in an email and send it to: nigel.hester@adive.co.uk
This information will then be anonymously combined with results from other breeders and we will be able to determine the trends of different species in collections in the UK and across Europe. Without this information the European Conservation Breeding Group cannot properly measure the status of captive birds and provide advice for their conservation.
The European census data are published on a specially created website so that all those interested can access the summary results:
WPA census page of ECBG

Several examples in WPA Annual Reviews show that this information is essential for managing captive populations across Europe.

To assist with the conservation of captive Galliformes please fill out the form and return it to the WPA office or to myself, as soon as possible. It is also very helpful to let us know if you do not or no longer keep any birds and we stress that all census returns are handled confidentially. Please do get in touch with the WPA office if you have any questions or problems completing the form.

Many thanks!
