In late June, Birds of Paradise hosted a group parrot toy making event with a lovely team from local Apple Stores. I was invited to attend and naturally jumped at the opportunity. Little did I know that prior to my great parrot toy awakening of 2018, my understanding of parrot toys was at best rudimentary. If you had asked me why parrot toys are important last year, I would have started by listing three of my best “I’m somewhat in the know” parrot toy statements.

Birds of Paradise is thinking about protection for captive parrots. As we recently completed two back-to-back emergency rescues of 41 parrots, we started musing about what protection exists if any for the captive parrot, what if there was a “Captive Parrot Bill of Rights”, and how the collective avian community can be the passport, spirit and the voice to a better future for every captive parrot.
Allison is a Mom to five children and “uber-guardian” to a menagerie of household pets. She has an acute awareness of the important role that children play in protecting captive animals and that they are indeed the next generation of animal and earth guardians.
Debbie Huckaby was an invited speaker at the June Long Island Parrot Society meeting. She moved the crowd with her heart-felt second chances talk that included awesome soundbytes such as "I started asking myself... what if I could create a world where second chances for these birds was the norm?"
