Our Philosophy

MAARS' philosophical and political positions are best summed up by the Principles of the Avian Welfare Coalition:




We do not breed or place birds with people who breed.




We do not sell, trade, or use birds in our care for commerce or profit.




We promote responsible guardianship of all captive birds.




We promote education on all issues of avian welfare.




We oppose the sale of unweaned baby birds and production breeding methods.




We oppose the mass-marketing and selling of birds through pet store chains, bird marts, and internet venues.




We maintain that all captive breeding contributes to the displacement and suffering of captive birds and, with very few exceptions, does not contribute to the viable preservation of species.




We support and encourage responsible legislation protecting the rights, health, and safety of birds living in captivity.




We strongly oppose legal/illegal exportation/importation and encourage all countries to adopt legislation, enforcement, and conservation policies to prevent wild birds from entering captivity.
