I support this incredible organization because of my interest and experience with parrots. I am not an expert in any way - I learn from my Severe Macaw - now 22 years old - everyday. Parrots are, to me, the most facinating of animals. In the past I had 5 birds. After becoming ill I decided to give them each a new good home. This was probably one of the most difficult decisions I was forced to make. They were each so special and getting the right home was not only difficult - but i still feel guilty because I really do not know how they are today. After 2 year without birds - the person who I gave Pepper to - the severe macaw - had to give her up and I got her back. That was 5 years ago. The most amazing thing about this event was that she did not speak in her new home. When she was brought into our home, she immediatly began to speak words that I always heard her speak. She call my name, asks for UP, and many other words. It took her about 3 minutes to reconize where she was and react ...almost as though she was here for those 2 years away. I find that amazing and the our birds need our respect because they clearly remember and know what is going on around. The Oasis Sanctuary is amazing. The importance cannot be emphasized. Parrots do have memory and I believe the deserve our love and respect. Oasis seems to do just that.
