A study into the effectiveness of disinfecting birds’ nests, carried out by the University of Kent, has led to a breakthrough in the understanding of biosecurity measures for the endangered echo parakeet in Mauritius.

The research team found that annual disinfection of parakeet nest sites prior to the breeding season, intended to reduce the spread of infectious disease in endangered parrot species, didn’t have the impact conservationists expected or indeed, had hoped for, leading to recommendation for a different approach.

Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease (PBFD), is a globally
emerging infectious disease affecting parrot species, and researchers
were looking at methods to reduce infection rates in the endangered
birds.

The research team found 83% of the fledglings in untreated nests
survived compared to 79% in the treated nests. The long-term study of
echo parakeets in Mauritius assessed how effective the disinfection
measures were in reducing the probability of a nest becoming infected
with PBFD.

Project lead Deborah Fogell, a PhD student from the Durrell
Institute of Conservation and Ecology (DICE) in Kent’s School of
Anthropology and Conservation (SAC) and ZSL’s (Zoological Society of
London) Institute of Zoology said:

“The desperate need of conservationists to respond to infectious
disease outbreaks in wildlife populations, especially those that are
small or recovering, often means field protocols need to be implemented
before critical evaluation. Our research findings will help us improve
biosecurity measures implemented in Mauritius in order to better support
fledging success”.

Conservationists have battled against Emerging Infectious
Diseases (EIDs), which are drivers of global extinction of threatened
species. The research team at DICE, a leading research institute which
provides training in wildlife conservation, assessed the efficiency of
biosecurity protocols in managing PBFD. Psittaciformes (parrots) are one
of the most vulnerable avian orders, with over a quarter of all extant
species recognised as in need of conservation action and 75% of species
in population decline.

Deborah Fogell and her colleagues recommend that it is essential
to continue to evaluate population management techniques to ensure they
are achieving the desired outcomes. The research illustrates that
conservation activities should be carefully considered through targeted
monitoring via further research and development, with conclusions
prioritising conservation objectives.
