Why the PCC?
Parrots are the most endangered group of #birds -- their fate is connected with humans who love and live with them in homes and habitats.
We invite those who care about parrots onto a path of healing and activism by joining the 2024 Parrot Conservation Corps (PCC) that will be bilingual in Spanish and English!!!
This is a chance to learn about and perform conservation personally -- with heart and strength. Participants can help to save the world from wherever they are, by supporting community conservation where people who live with the parrots are.
Learning, healing, support, and techniques practiced in the Corps will help individuals in their own lives, prepare them for further work in conservation, and also serve as the basis for a community that sings, “We will not let our Earth and wildlife go!”
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
After completing the PCC, you may use the information you learn to build your conservation projects and to work, perhaps, with OEC as we are growing and need more engaged and committed team members.
