Parrot Conservation Corps

Why the PCC?

One Earth Conservation invites participants onto a path of healing and activism by joining our Parrot Conservation Corps. We emphasize parrots because they are the most endangered group of birds and their fate is connected with humans who love and live with them in homes and habitats. Learning, healing, support, and techniques practiced in the Corps will help individuals in their own lives, and also serves as the basis for a community that sings, “We will not let our earth and wildlife go!” This is a chance to do conservation personally and with heart and strength. Participants can help to save the world from where they are by supporting community conservation where people who live with the parrots are. Watch for information about future cohorts (a Spanish language one is in session through most of 2023).

What do You Learn About in the PCC?


What you will learn and experience:

  • Community, support, friendship, camaraderie, connection, and meaning

  • Skills for connecting to and communicating and relating with self, others (of all species), and nature as a whole

  • Growth in five natural intelligences: emotional, social, multispecies, ecological, and spiritual

  • Greater organizational and activist skills such as compassionate communication, resilience, and joy

  • Scientific, social, and multispecies theory and facts behind the climate and biodiversity crises and remedies that address these crises, with an emphasis on the illegal wildlife trade and parrots

  • Guidance as you develop a concrete plan for your healing activism

  • Concrete methodology and experience in parrot conservation

  • Resume building for projects and work, which may be with One Earth Conservation, as our growth means we need more engaged and committed team members

Stay tuned for the next round of applications for the Parrot Conservation Corps, which we have been offered in both English and Spanish. Please see the attached brochure for more information about the program in English offered in 2021, which included 22 participants.
