Naturally For Birds

STGF is very proud to be part of Naturally For Birds – a new range of avicultural supplements that has arisen directly from the research we have been doing with captive and wild Gouldian finches.

For nearly 15 years now, we have been working on the ecology, behaviour, physiology and nutritional requirements of a range of finches. Part of this work has been researching the wild diets of finches at different stages in their lifecycle (i.e. different times of the year). Using this research, a range of supplements has subsequently been formulated to meet the natural bio-rhythms of wild Australian seedeaters. When added to a traditional diet, the scientific trials showed dramatic and staggering results in improving general health and well-being of birds, as well as increasing fertility, breeding success, nestling and juvenile growth rates and survival, as well as a number of other health, survival and reproductive-related effects. This led to the decision to extend this nutritional work across a range of different species, with very different nutritional requirements. As a result we now have three valuable supplements for cage birds – PRIMA, PROTEIN BOOST and MICRONUTRIENTS. Read more about them at www.naturallyforbirds.com.au.

It is against this background that NATURALLY for BIRDS was formed in 2014, with a view to raising funds for nutritional research and other ongoing activities of Save the Gouldian Fund.

Importantly, all profits from the sales of all NATURALLY for BIRDS products go to Save The Gouldian Fund to continue saving the Gouldian finch and for further research into avian nutrition.
