    destruction and unsustainable levels of exploitation."

  • RELEASE_7_6_0

    Prepare for the 7.6.0 release.
  • RELEASE_7_5_0

    Release 7.5.0 - "Yellow-collared Lovebird"
    "White eye-rings lovebirds, of which Yellow-collared lovebirds are part, are
    reportedly less aggressive in comparison to the slightly larger peach-faced
    lovebird.  They are frequently housed in aviaries with other species of
    their genus, a practice which although can be convenient, and wonderfully
    aesthetic, may lead to hybridization.  This can especially be concerning
    where other species may not be as locally common e.g.  black-cheeked
    lovebird, and Lilians lovebird." -

    Prepare for the 7.4.0 release.
  • RELEASE_7_3_0

    Supported release 7.3.0 - "Peach-faced Lovebird"
    "The rosy-faced lovebird is a fairly small bird, 17–18 cm long with an
    average wing length of 106 mm and tail length of 44–52 mm.
    Populations have been reduced in some areas by trapping for the pet trade.
    However numbers may have increased in other parts due to human creation of
    new water sources and the building of artificial structures which provide
    new nesting sites." -

    is not known why poachers are poisoning the birds.  Lilian's lovebird
    researchers assume poachers mean to poison larger mammals and lovebirds fall
    victims." -
