The “My Forest Campaign” is a project that we hold very close to our hearts. Why?
The Cape Parrot (or more scientifically known as Poicephalus robustus) is more than just a bird; it's a symbol of South Africa's rich biodiversity. Sadly, with just about 2000 of these magnificent creatures left in the wild, it's a symbol that's vanishing. The primary threat? The degradation of indigenous Afromontane forests, their natural habitat.
For over a decade, the Cape Parrot Project (CPP) has taken strides to reverse this decline. The mission is clear: Saving the Cape Parrot means saving the forest it calls home, a sanctuary that encompasses the irreplaceable Yellowwood tree and intricate Afromontane ecosystems.
In order to make this campaign more visible and to gain more support from fellow South Africans, Wild Bird approached BIGBrave to join forces.
