There's a misconception in the world that rescued parrots are of less value than parrots in pet stores. This misconception is costing companion parrot lives, both store bought babies and those rescued, in many different ways. Those on the front lines of rescue and sanctuary know first hand the resiliency and excellence of rescued companion parrots. Nell Knapp knows, after 20 years on the front lines she brings her story of Big Bird and his 4 month transformation. Please adopt, don't shop.
We've gathered and continue to gather wonderful Companion Parrot Advocates from around the world to write their stories and experiences. These are Advocates who are making a difference by working tirelessly in Advocacy itself, Parrot Rescue and Sanctuary and Avian Veterinarian Care. These stories, and real life experiences are here for you to read, share, learn and apply not only to your own flock, but to your own efforts inside your own companion parrot advocacy.
I hope you'll find ideas and inspiration while reading through these Advocate Articles. Remember, your thoughts and comments are important, they are integral to the success of our prime directive here; To give every parrot, every where, a happy home.
