Review for Long Island Parrot Society Of New York, North Babylon, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a member for a number of years and now proud to say a board member. The focus of the Long Island Parrot Society is to educate folks on the care of companion parrots through our meetings, presenters, outreaches, Parrot University, our newsletter, website and Facebook page. We also help those bird owners in need (especially during an emergency such as Super Storm Sandy) with providing guidance and/or resources. In a situation such as Sandy, we were able to foster (through the kindness of our members) those birds who were displaced. Our goal is to open a shelter/education center on Long Island (the first for parrots). We are working diligently towards that goal. We also affiliate ourselves with other parrot organizations/clubs (ie: The AFA--American Federation of Aviculture) to better network in helping the parrots and their owners. Bottom line, we are a group of committed, passionate people who love parrots and want to make a difference in their lives.
