November 12 Rachel DeFronzo, Director of Education for Foster Parrots will be speaking at The Parrot Club on November 12 about how a large sanctuary like Foster Parrots, with over 400 parrots, operates including how they keep the aviaries clean on a day to day basis, how they get everyone fed, how they screen current and new parrots for diseases, etc. Itís hard enough keeping a few parrots. Itís hard to imagine how they do it!
Founded in 1989, Foster Parrots is the largest avian rescue organization in the Northeast US. They are accredited by The Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries and are a founding member of the countryís leading avian advocacy and information organization, the Avian Welfare Coalition. Their sanctuary in RI, The New England Exotic Wildlife Sanctuary, provides life-long sanctuary care for unadoptable parrots and other exotics and has adoption services for well-socialized parrots who desire human companionship.
