The AFA--American Federation of Aviculture, Inc is one of the best organizations I have ever been part of. From Education to Conservation, they help birds in the wild and educate those who have birds or are interested in birds. They have online education courses, Kids events, and more. The conventions are the most diversified events I have participated in, and the Board of Directors are wonderful people who dedicate their lives to birds. The Disaster Program has helped so many in their time of devastation, I am Proud to be a volunteer for such a wonderful organization and I am a life time member as well. Anyone who has a interest in birds should support this wonderful group.

You would be hard pressed to find an organization more dedicated to their mission statement. I am honored to be part of AFA and proud of the work we all do. As someone said just a few days ago at the 38th AFA Convention, "It is not about me, it is about the birds." That says it all very well!!

I support the American Federation of Aviculture (AFA) because they care about birds. The AFA is devoted to the future of birds through education, conservation and legislative awareness. Their online educational programs provide excellent information for anyone that lives with birds. AFA has always been a supporter of conservation and research. AFA members donate money and time to help preserve the population of birds in the wild. AFA also helps to fund much needed research to improve the future of birds. This is a volunteer organization whose members are dedicated to the future of birds.

The goal of the American Federation (AFA) is to ensure long-term, self-sustaining populations of exotic birds both in captivity and in the wild, by education, conservation and research, and legislative awareness. The Board is made up of unpaid vounteers and most income funds education, Watchbird magazine, conservation, and disaster relief. This organization is doing a fantastic job with little funds.

I am a long time member of the American Federation of Aviculture, Inc. I am honored to be part of such an incredible organization. It is a reassuring feeling to know that the AFA organization is run by professional volunteers consisting of lawyers, doctors, professors and business owners. You can always count on AFA for any bird related question. They are the ideal group to be affiliated with. Thank you AFA volunteers for giving so much of yourselves to help us all.

The American Federation of Aviculture Inc. has been the grass roots education organization for parrot and other bird keepers for over 35 years. They have assisted pet owners and breeders from Hurricanes to fires and floods. This organization has provided one of the most educational magazines in the cottage industry for as long as they have been in business. They offer a full color magazine, online education courses on bird keeping, and an annual convention where members can meet vendors and other professionals in the business. The greatest minds in aviculture come together here in this one non-profit to offer education and assistance to anyone with a pet or breeding bird. The AFA offers annual awards for First Time Breeding, Establishment of species, and more. It is a world renowned and respected organization of AVICULTURISTS and EXPERTS.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The way the United States Fish and Wildlife Service now views aviculture in the United States. Additionally, the generous assistance their vendors such as ZuPreem, Hagen, Kaytee, Roudybush, Sun Seed, and so many others have given the AFA so they can accomplish their mission during times of disaster.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Change their bylaws to allow the expulsion of detractors and other members that joined only to start trouble. Especially those that are also affiliated with "agenda driven" groups that seek to end bird keeping in the United States. All organizations that offer membership to the public have to deal with "bad apples", they should be able to throw them out and watch them rot from afar.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

None

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

It has been a lifetime of opportunity for me and many others.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Like part of a family...
