I came to volunteer at The Oasis because I love all parrots, and have a cockatoo at home. It was one of the best weeks I've ever spent. Each day, I knew I was doing something helpful. Even when I pulled 50 lbs. of grapes off their stems for the fruit and vegetable mix, I knew it helped. Even when I scraped bird poop off cages and floors, I knew it helped. And I got to meet all the birds, including species I'd never seen before. The staff, in addition to caring for the birds, LOVES them all. They know each bird's personality, what it likes and doesn't, what special things each one wants or needs. The Oasis is an extraordinary place for parrots.
