The annual Cape Parrot Big Birding Day (CPBBD) is a wonderful way to assist in a conservation effort and often gets volunteers out to places they would rarely visit.
Each year a group of students from the University of KwaZulu-Natal assist in monitoring the forests around Ingeli in southern KZN. The forests there are typical of those where the Cape Parrots occur.
The importance of the annual CPBBD is highlighted by:
- giving information on population trends and numbers
- reporting on illegal hunting, cutting down of forests, and capture of parrots
- it gives important distribution data for the Cape parrot in South Africa
