Online travel portal is actively engaged in the protection of parrots

HolidayPiratesGroup operates one of the most well-known online travel portals in Europe. The company is also increasingly using its popularity to raise awareness on the subject of sustainability. Now, the online travle company is stepping up its involvement in the corporate social responsibility sector and is committed to the protection of parrots - one of the most endangered of all bird families in the world - in the context of a partnership with the World Parrot Trust.

"We would like to actively support projects in the animal and wildlife conservation field in the future and have found the ideal partner for a sustainable and long-term commitment in the World Parrot Trust", says David Armstrong, Chief Operating Officer of HolidayPirates "The heart of our collaboration will initially focus on protecting the Scarlet Macaw in Costa Rica, the speciesof parrot that is also the inspiration for our company logo."

The World Parrot Trust is a non-profit global organisation committed to protecting species of parrots and wildlife. The aim of this work is to promote biological diversity, to end the trade in parrots in the wild, to preserve natural habitats and conservation. Within the last 26 years, the World Parrot Trust has already successfully protected around 66 species of parrots in more than 42 countries.

“We are looking forward to the joint cooperation with the HolidayPirates GmbH. Wehave numerous projects in many different countries that are in need of all kinds of support," says James Gilardi, Executive Director of the World Parrot Trust.
