Parrots Conservation Alliance
For the first time, parrot sanctuaries/rescues/wildlife centers across the Americas will come together in Nashville, TN with an urgent mission to aid parrots in native ranges confronting habitat loss, poaching and threatened extinction, as well as the non-releasable captive parrots facing an overpopulation crisis and widespread substandard care in isolation. The theme is “Uniting for Parrots in Peril” focusing on how each of our organizations can increase donations, capacity, and sustainability, learn more effectively from each other, and create new avenues for working together on behalf of all parrots.
We at EAST are thrilled to attend this event, and will host a tour for conference attendees at our sanctuary on Monday of this inaugural event. Kim Hannah, President and Executive Director, will speak about the reality of starting a non-profit for parrot rescue, and will lead a private tour of EAST for conference participants!
