"Save the Pet Macaw" is a petition on change.org petitioning the Brisbane City Council, Moreton City Council and Redland City Council to change local laws that prohibit the keeping of a large parrot as a pet if the property on which they are kept is less than 1000 square metres.
The Redland City Council website advises the following with respect to keeping large birds as pets:
The size of your property determines the type and number of large parrots (cockatoo, galah or similar) you can keep.
- Multi-residential properties: no large parrots allowed.
- Properties less than 1000 square metres: no large parrots allowed.
- Properties between 1000 square metres and 3000 square metres: 1 large parrot allowed.
- Properties over 3001 square metres: 2 large parrots allowed.
