The illegal pet trade is worth an estimated $10-20 billion annually. It is the third most lucrative illegal enterprise in the world, behind only drugs and weapons. Join us to hear Dr. Charles Bergman, describe his experiences in a lecture titled, “Speak, Parrot: Going Undercover to Save the Smartest Birds in the World.”
Bergman has traveled around the world with his camera, working to end the trafficking of wild birds. The pinnacle of his efforts was in Uganda, where he joined Dr. Jane Goodall in the release of 17 African Grey Parrots back into the wild. PLU Professor Bergman’s articles and photographs have been featured in the Smithsonian, Audubon and National Geographic magazines.
