My Parrot Bliss Today

July 24, 2011

Phoebe Greene Linden, MA parrot expert and ECHO volunteer

I was invited to volunteer for the feeding of over 80+ rescued Loras, Prikichis and Cockatiels. In case you missed my previous posts over 100 unweaned babies were found in squalor after being taken by poachers on Bonaire. STINAPA and local police rescued the babies and are under the care of Dr. Sam Williams and Echo Bonaire.

Pictures speak louder than words.

Save the Parrot Chicks of Bonaire

July 7, 2011

Donate to Save Bonaire's Parrots


Echo is working to save 112 endangered parrots and endemic parakeets illegally taken by poachers on Bonaire. The unfed and starving chicks were confiscated thanks to great efforts by STINAPA Bonaire and the island’s Police force. The birds were bound for the pet trade on neighbouring Curacao.

There are 82 unweaned chicks which the Echo team are now hand feeding. This is a tremendous strain on our limited resources. We have received emergency aid from World Parrot Trust which covers the immediate needs of these parrots. We have already successfully released other confiscated illegal pet Amazon parrots, and hope to return all 112 of these parrots to the wild too.

Your support is desperately needed to help keep these endangered and endemic birds alive and so they can be released.

Please send a donation today. Your support will make a tremendous difference for these parrots.

Yours sincerely,

Sam Williams
