Interview with Wolfgang Kiessling
You can find this interesting interview in the April issue of the German avicultural magazine
The April issue of the respected German avicultural magazine Gefiederte Welt includes a long interview with Wolfgang Kiessling, the proprietor of Loro Parque in Teneriffe in the Canary Islands. He set up the Loro Parque Fundacion which has contributed very substantially to parrot conservation projects around the world, in particular the Spix's Macaw project, which has received to date some US$ 600,000 from the Fundacion.
As this project is at a critical point with the disappearance of the last remaining bird in the wild, Wolfgang Kiessling's views on the project and its future are very important. I have therefore extracted the relevant parts of the interview and translated them into English for the news page of the website.
