Graeme Phipps has had a long association with aviculture, keeping birds himself, but also working in bird related roles for many years. Graeme is currently Director of conservation programs with not-for-profit charity Recovery And Restoration of Endangered Species (R.A.R.E.S.) Foundation Limited.
His previous roles include at the Macleay Museum University of Sydney, Curator of birds and later principal curator of Taronga Zoo, teacher of captive animal management. He was until recently President of the Avicultural Society of New South Wales, had several roles in the A.F.A when it operated, and was Chairman of the Exotic Birds Committee of N.E.B.R.S. Clearly Graeme has had great involvement in avicultural issues and policies and his message in this talk is relevant to everyone.
