Dear Java sparrow lover,
As the new chairman of the Java Sparrow Society UK (JSSUK) I would like to tell you a
little about the basic aims and objectives of our progressive, friendly and ever growing
group of Java sparrow fans.
We feel that the bringing together of likeminded individuals who share a common
interest in a group like ours can only benefit the status of any species within aviculture,
and at least in maintaining its position in our wonderful hobby but we hope it will be
more likely that by with working together and using a society driven strategy, we can
take the Java sparrow in particular to new heights and levels of popularity.
This direction and strategy has already clearly shown to be very positive in the 5 years
the JSSUK has been in existence and has got to be seen as huge steps in the right
direction in heading towards the society goal of placing the Java sparrow in a very
prominent position in UK aviculture and beyond.
As a society we are keen to have members (all levels of birdkeeping experience are
welcomed) who can assist in increasing knowledge levels in areas such as:
v New colour mutations in the Java sparrow (understanding Java genetics)
v Exhibiting Java sparrows (raising standards of quality Javas on show)
v Breeding and keeping Java sparrows in cages and aviaries
v Keeping Javas as pets / general information on members thoughts on the Java
v Increasing the written word on experiences in all areas on keeping the Java sparrow
Our unique internet membership allows for all Java sparrow lovers the world over to
easily become a part of this group and have the opportunity to put their thoughts,
experiences and ideas on the Java down for posterity in our quarterly newsletters.
These newsletters are we feel the real strength of the JSSUK, they give a real insight
into the Java and all members including those outside the UK are openly encouraged to
write for the society newsletters so that the Java sparrow knowledge base is widened.
So in closing I would ask you to consider joining a growing band of not only UK based
Java enthusiasts but worldwide ones too. The cost to join is one of the cheapest around
too, another benefit we strongly believe (subs have stayed the same since the forming
of the JSSUK five years ago), please visit our website, address above, for more
