I had the opportunity this week to teach a great troop of Girl Scouts about cockatoos.
The girls were extremely well behaved and very intelligent. Haley was so comfortable around them that she actually fell asleep!
I had topics to cover but it is such a relief to have a class be guided by well thought out questions. There was a lot of interest in Chloe and how she came to rescue other birds, as well as Haley’s species being pushed into extinction. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing true interest in parrot/cockatoo preservation as well as what it takes to properly care for one of these magnificent creatures.
It was an honor to work with such smart and caring young ladies.
