De la belle exotique à la belle invasive : Perceptions et appréciations de la Perruche à collier (Psittacula krameri) dans la métropole parisienne

Abstract : With the development of worldwide trade of exotic pets, cities have become key entry points for the increasing introductions of non-native animals. While many studies show the negative impacts of these introductions, few focus on the appreciation of these species by the city-dwellers. With the arrival of the Rose-ringed parakeet (Psittacula krameri) in the metropolis of Paris, we studied the inhabitants’ perceptions and appreciations of a potential invasive species, which at first sight arouses sympathy. The Authors investigated the criteria determining people’s perceptions and appreciations of this animal. Whereas this bird is liked spontaneously for its exoticism, an attitude reversal occurs with its population growth and as it becomes more commonplace. The status regarding the use of the place where inhabitants interact with the parakeet also affects how much it is appreciated, in that negative impacts are less tolerated when they are close to private spaces.
