Books by One Earth Conservation Publishing to Free Your Spirit
We are convinced, now more than ever, that to gain the powers of solidarity, resilience, and resistance we have to come together in local communities that are committed to and claimed by the biotic community in which they are embedded. Only in this way can we mourn, learn, and have sufficient focus and wisdom to build a new way, even as the old way crumbles around us. These guides, given the risks and challenges of these times, are meant to augment community formation and personal transformation and commitment, whether you are beginning something new or use these guides for an already existing community, family, or organization. They are meant to be broadly nonsectarian, but also can be adopted by particular religious or spiritual institutions and endeavors. They are adaptable for a wide variety of circumstances, with the overall goal of supporting the health of individuals, relationships, and communities of all species. They will:
• Deepen your connection to nature, animals, self, and others
• Grow your resilience
• Augment your advocacy, justice work, and compassionate care of individuals of all species
• Develop community and relationships
• Foster your loving animal nature• Cultivate acceptance of self and others of all species

How can we both save ourselves and the world despite overwhelming odds? One Earth Conservation seeks to answer that question with our Nurture Nature Program, and now with this memoir from One Earth's Co-Director Rev. Dr. LoraKim Joyner. This book shows how a deep understanding that everything is connected in beauty can offer healing and hope to the parrots and people of Latin America, and to a world where climate change, terrorism, political polarization, and loss of biodiversity threaten us all.

Prion takes us to a post-Covid-19 world in the not-so-distant future, where humans live daily with disease outbreaks and loss of biodiversity, but also with meaning, joy, and hope. The story begins in New Zealand and follows the lives of people and parrots in Australia, Honduras, and the United States. A growing coalition of diverse scientists and conservationists suddenly face a terrifying, new pandemic that threatens the human race. Using cutting-edge technologies, they discover that parrots are the transmitters of the “Zealand Zombie Disease.” In a life-or-death race to find the disease’s cause and cure and survive one of the largest typhoons ever recorded, the core researchers rely on their knowledge and experiences from decades of researching and rescuing parrots to save both parrots and people. Though the future is dim for both species, their cooperation and commitment give new meaning to surviving the hard times of any age.

This free booklet is a must for anyone working in parrot conservation, for it describes a method for rapidly locating populations of parrots to protect so that other conservation methods can proceed immediately. This is because most populations of parrots in Mesoamerica and South America occur in patches fragmented by habitat degradation and wildlife extraction patterns. Determining the density of a parrot species in one location might not correlate with the density in other patches, challenging conservationists to use this data to form concrete conservation plans, especially given limited financial and time resources. As an alternative, fixed transects adapted for parrot foraging, nesting, and roosting behavior provides a rapid assessment of the minimum number of distinct individuals along a multiple point transect. This counting technique then becomes a method for raising consciousness and awareness, focusing people on parrot biology and behavior and hence increasing their appreciation of the species, and providing workers, students, and community members with a concrete and satisfying method for contributing to their future. It is also available in Spanish.
This free booklet complements the Guide above and is a case study on how to use this methodology in parrot monitoring. It also summarizes seven years of data during the evolution of the parrot monitoring on Ometepe Island, Nicaragua.
This free booklet is the third in a series of publications that describe certain methodologies in parrot monitoring. This booklet invites readers to participate in developing a new technique for counting parrots on rivers, and provides the results of a seven-day river parrot count on the Rewa River in Guyana in 2019.
