The plight of parrots - Mecklenburg audubon's meeting on April 6th.
Thursday, April 6th: (refreshments 6:45 PM; program 7:15 PM)
Tyvola Road Senior Center, 2225 Tyvola Road, Charlotte, NC 28210
Wildlife conservation usually begins at home. But what happens when wild creatures are snatched from their native land and mistreated due to misunderstanding of their wild nature? Find out April 6th when Leslie Wieser presents “The Plight of Parrots - From Wild Bird to Human Companion”.

Parrots are intelligent, entertaining and beautiful but their wild traits don’t always mesh well in people’s homes. Come hear how they evolved as pets and learn that while they may be domestic, they are far from domesticated. Come hear about the plight of parrots, meet Leslie and a special guest from her own flock of birds.

Leslie has lived with parrots for over 18 years, has traveled to 8 countries to observe parrots in the wild, served on the Board of Directors of Companion Parrots Re-homed for 11 years, is Director of Human Resources at Discovery Place and is currently the caregiver for 6 parrots of her own.

As usual, refreshments will begin at 6:45 PM with the program starting at 7:15 PM sharp.
