Sometime ago seven individuals calling themselves bird enthusiasts used to meet on weekends to exchange ideas on bird breeding and how to professionalize and uplift the Bird Industry in Cebu, these informal gatherings are usually done over a cup of coffee. Finally, with the encouragement of other bird enthusiasts on September 28, 2002, these individuals decided it was time to become a formal organization, thus giving birth to the Cebu Avian Society. From that simple gathering the group encouraged others to join in the organization through a series of consultations and meetings, from the seven enthusiasts the membership grew to more than 40 in less than a year.
Todate, Cebu Avian Society (CAS) is a SEC registered Non-Government Organization and a member of the Philippine Avicultural Federation, we are guided with the following objectives;
