Join us in working toward a safer and more stable world for captive parrots.
We are a nonprofit organization located in Washington State, founded for the purpose of building stronger communities of parrot caretakers to help ensure that parrots will have safe places to go in the case of the illness, death, or other types of incapacity of caretakers. We don't want any parrot to die alone abandoned by its person, or suffer under the care of by people who don't have adequate knowledge, understanding, or commitment to its welfare. Our core program facilitates Succession Plans for the current and future caretakers of individual parrots.
Our online networks are not intended as general communication platforms since there are already excellent and well-established online discussion forums, although people are welcome to use them for discussions about anything parrot related.
There are five separate species-based community platforms in our program, for Cockatoos, African Greys, Macaws, Amazons, and Eclectus Parrots. The online cockatoo community (4the2s) and the eclectus community (Velvet Feathers) are live and accepting membership now. The other three are in development.
We have created a broader focused network called Connections open to everyone and global in scope. It has regional groups that members can join to make it easier to connect with other people locally in situations where that is appropriate.
