In general cocatoos, galahs and parrots are confined to captivity because they speak and it cause amusement to the people, but placing birds in captivity put in danger to them because deprive them of natural food and cages usually lacks of hygiene, they are subjected to dirty perches. Not to mention the diverse food they eat in their natural habitats.
In Peru many birds are rescued from black market, many of these birds are taken and put in pbc tubes for being sent to Europe and USA where the illegal operators get a high price for them. In the Amazon the most attractive are Macaws and parrots for this commercial use. So please do not buy them, you are contributing to this black and illegal market.
