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.

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.
