MEETING DATES FOR 2021 to be advised
October Zoom Presentation by Dave Pace.
“Post Covid Aviculture – Aviculture in the 2020’s – Challenges and Perceptions.”
We hope you are all well in this difficult time. We have all missed our face-to-face meetings over the past 2 years but fortunately tools like zoom have allowed us to obtain excellent International and Interstate presenters while still catching up virtually. The last few presentations on zoom have averaged around 70 participants, even having gone over 100 participants, which is extremely good for zoom meetings. So to maintain this we have contacted a number of excellent speakers, enabling us to keep a varied program of practices and species kept in Australian Aviculture.
For October it is our pleasure to be able to inform members that we have David Pace as our special presenter. Below is a description of the zoom presentation David has planned and an introduction, for those few who don’t know David:
David has kept and bred a wide variety of birds since the age of 10, ranging from parrots, quail, pigeons, doves and softbills. His passion however, has always been with finches. After moving from Victoria to teach at Scotch College, he now resides in the city of Adelaide, having lived in the City of Churches for almost six years. David has recently completed a new set of aviaries and currently keeps a collection of finches, softbills and Neophemas. As a school teacher, David strongly believes in promoting our hobby to a younger generation and has initiated several aviary projects in Victorian and South Australian schools, encouraging a new generation of bird keepers. David is a firm believer in sharing information about our wonderful hobby through opening his aviaries to visitors, the writing of articles and giving presentations at various avicultural events. In particular, he is passionate about our need to promote and execute high levels of husbandry, presenting aviculture at all times in the best possible light. With the advent of social media, this has become more important than ever.
David is a long-time member and contributor to several avicultural clubs in South Australia, Victoria, NSW and Queensland, and feels that clubs allow a great deal of information to be shared, which strengthens aviculture overall.
David’s presentation for the ASA will focus on aviary design, husbandry, compatibility, predator protection, the importance of promoting our hobby, public perception and the important role of technology, as aviculture enters the 2020’s.
For those members that have not yet joined our Zoom meetings, we hope that this will be your first.
We ask you to please remember to mute yourself, once the guest speaker starts their presentation.
Meeting : Wednesday 27th October 2021 Start time : 8:00 pm (Zoom, open from 7:50 pm)
