The way i see it DOC are just getting lazy and want to remove some of there work load. they have no idea as to who or how it's going to be managed.
i think the national register is good, it'll help keep track of who's got what and if set up correctly would be able to use it to track a birds geniology.
The removal of the permiting system may mean more people will be willing to keep kakariki as the whole permit thing is a deterant.
Returning to top of the new posts list.
Matt notified me some time back regarding this...with work/health issues I overlooked the subject, thu at the time I tried to contact DoC re also hosting the documents here
As usual , they did not reply, thu I do note they now after all these yrs reconise kakariki.net .
When the Minister of Conservation 1st proposed DoC looking into keeping of kakariki back in 2003, I then wrote to him, thu the replies where very uninformed and obviously by someone who I doubt had never seen a kakariki, let alone cared for one.
Once again the proposals as they apply to kakariki, seem very much along the lines of been drawn up (in regards to capitive kakariki, hybrids, care, history etc) by some desk jockey in Wellington and advised by someone who has very little knowledge of kakariki in capitivity in NZ, or the rest of the world, or the state of capitive kakariki.
The proposals are very uninformed and based of DoC data bases that are way out of date, and put bluntly a bloody mess.
To my knowledge, no private kakariki breeders or keepers have been consulted, nore has this web server/web site been used as a reference according to server logs to gain informed information in the care and keeping of capitive kakariki. _________________ My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
