Coming Events 2017

Date: September 8, 2017

Title: "From private to public: the challenges of going from hobby to bird zoo owners."

Speakers: Steve Sass (NSW)  

Steve and Linda Sass have been private aviculturists in NSW for a combined 60 years. With Linda a late starter to the hobby (aged 15), they grew with their hobby over the coming decades as did their family of four children often in tow at bird shows, sales and club meetings. Their passion started with Australian grassfinches, and with Steve growing up in the NSW central tablelands, he had four species in the wild close to his back door! With a move into softbills in their late teens, they have been captivated by this amazing and challenging group of birds ever since. Since the age of 10, Steve has been designing his very own bird park with many iterations gracing expansive sheets of cardboard (and not a hint of a budget). But after two years of serious planning, in 2015 they opened On the Perch Bird Park on the NSW south coast. As dedicated finch and softbill enthusiasts, they share their journey and the challenges they face from the early planning to the current operation of more than 90 species and 600 birds.
