Priam Australia is a family company, owned by Peter & Val Gowland, that has been trading in the Canberra region for over 26 years.  Directors and immediate family have varied backgrounds in the biological sciences including wildlife research, wildlife care and wildlife consultancy.

The Research and Breeding Fac ility, trading as Priam Psittaculture Centre (PPC), is a major breeder of rare and endangered native and exotic parrots in Australia.  It sees managed breeding as a means to benefit in situ and ex situ species survival.  Managed breeding reduces the pressure on wild animals for captive purposes and enables controlled captive environments to aid in the collection of data that can be used for wild animal management.  Sustainable captive management of species insures a genetically secure island population which may also serve as reintroduction founders if a disaster occurs, as well as better educating people in the best practice management required in captive environments.

Priam Psittaculture Centre is a leader in the research and development of technology for the captive breeding of rare and endangered parrots in Australia.  It has achieved many Australian firsts in the breeding of exotic parrot species including the captive breeding of the critically endangered Red-fronted Macaw, Ara rubrogenys.  PPC was part of the last legal importation of exotic parrots into Australia in the mid 1990’s.  PPC is also a long-standing Associate Institutional member of the Australasian Regional Association of Zoological Parks & Aquaria (ARAZPA) and a member of the International Species Information System (ISIS).
