Date: 11/20/2022
Speaker: Gabe Kahsen
Description: Gabe has worked with parrots at multiple accredited zoos and aquariums as a zookeeper, welfare consultant, and animal care manager. Looking to improve the welfare of his own companion flock; Gabe realized the stark contrast between the science-based best practice resources available for other species, and the informal anecdotal testimonies available for parrots. Looking to fill this gap, Gabe founded the Psittacine Welfare Institute to provide free scientifically-backed best practice resources for all parrot caretakers from large institutes to companion pet owners. Gabe considers himself a life-long learner, and is currently pursuing a Parrot Behavior Consultant Certification and a Masterís Degree in Avian Ecology with a focus on studying wild psittacines.

About Our Meetings...


Come and enjoy the fun and bring a bird (as long as it is clipped). It's so enjoyable seeing all the different species of parrots and talking to other parrot owners.
   
   You don't have to be a member to attend, but we would love to have you join. Meeting will be a full afternoon of meeting, socializing, eating, program, and raffle. For members who have not renewed their membership or who would like to join, please see Renee Davis, our membership chair person. She will be at the meeting to sign you up. Our annual membership fee includes your family (two voting members) and brings you our monthly newsletter by email, and helps us to provide special speakers. Thank you for joining and helping support the parrot community in St. Louis.
   
   We do have a raffle most months so if you would like to donate item(s), they are always welcome. They do not have to be bird related. We sell raffle tickets for $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00.
