[EmergingEthnoNetwork] People and parrots on sacred Aboriginal land, central Australia
Yesterday I posted an article on some serious cross-cultural and heritage issues that arose when, following a long season of unexpected rain, an irruption of the exceedingly rare and exceedingly beautiful Princess Parrot Polyetis alexandrae occurred.
For mine it is an example of the importance of ethical dealings in natural history.
The obsession with the Princess Parrot has nearly killed several birdos already in the recent past.

Cheers and I look forward to your comments.
