April 2023 Speaker: Tom De Graaff

Tom started his bird life with the Ballarat Branch of our Society. Over the years, he has kept and bred a variety of finches, doves and small parrots since 1970.
He is a 50-year member and a Life Member and, through studies, came to attend Melbourne meetings during the seventies. Tom’s studies in zoology and genetics tied in perfectly with aviculture. It was at the start of quite a boom in the breeding of lovebird mutations, followed by grass parrots and then rosellas. Tom has written a number of articles on the subject but his talk this time will concentrate more on population viability, mutations and the future.
His topic is Populations in the wild and captivity – viable?
