Making StopPDD Work...

We can help Stop PDD by working together...

  • Every avian interest shares the common goals of controlling and eventually eradicating PDD.
  • Parrot companions, avian interest groups and clubs, aviculturists, sanctuaries and rescue organizations, conservationists, avian health specialists and veterinary practitioners and clinical researchers are all on the front lines in the battle against PDD.

"The most important members of our group have been members of bird clubs, aviculturists and veterinarians who have provided us with the financial support we need to complete our work". - Dr. Branson W. Ritchie
Emerging Diseases Research Group, University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine

  • It was individual donations, grass-root and more formal fundraising efforts that helped Dr. Ritchie's research team develop the means for controlling another deadly viral killer, PBFD. Now, we are doing the same for PDD.

  • Many have invested in research by spending tax-exempt dollars to help fund PDD research.
    Others have donated prizes for drawings like the "
    Grey Poop-on Challenge"
