Completion of the required class covering Basic Anatomy & Health, Nutrition, Enrichment & Environment, Body Language, and Positive Reinforcement Training is required to become eligible to adopt a PEAC foster bird.  The above mentioned classis now offered on an individual basis; please use our contact page to make arrangements to attend.

Special Guest Speaker Dr Nadine Lamberski-The Thick Billed Parrot


Mar 29,2015 - Time: 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Location: SD Central Animal Shelter at 5480 Gaines St. cat_bfoot_kitten 2 The Thick-billed Parrot is an endangered species endemic to the Sierra Madre Occidental of Mexico and the sky-islands that extend into the southwest U.S. in New Mexico and Arizona. This talk will discuss how habitat destruction has caused the number of this species to significantly decline, resulting in less than 2000 estimated to be currently still in the wild.  Many attempts are being made to preserve the last native parrot to North America. Dr. Nadine Lamberski is the Director of Veterinary Services at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park and an adjunct professor at the University of California-Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine. She is a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, a Diplomat of the American College of Zoological Medicine, and a Past President of the American Association of Zoo Veterinarians. She is a long-time researcher on the thick-billed parrot. Being a guest speaker there is a $20 registration free for all attendees including members

Toy Building Workshop


May 16,2015 - Time: 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

For the first Toy Building Workshop of 2015 we are trying something very different. We are partnering with another 501(c)3 non-profit called ArtFORM (artformsandiego.org) located at 3316 Adams Avenue, in the Normal Heights neighborhood.  ArtFORM is where creative re-used materials take shape, which is stated on their website. Many of the materials are parrot friendly so we have chosen a large variety of these materials for you to choose from to create your very own parrot toys.  Erin Pennell, president and board chair, will be directing or workshop and together we hope to find fun ways to put re-used materials to use for our companion parrots. The cost of this work shop is $40 and is limited to 15 participants so be sure to register in advance.  Parking can be a bit of a challenge as is the case every where in San Diego so we suggest giving yourself plenty of time or better yet arrange to carpool with other members attending the workshop. Reminders will be sent out as we get closer to the date and we look forward to a fun afternoon for everyone.ArtFormLogoBanner_1000x288_02
