Wilson Parrot Foundation
Brian Wilson is a retired firefighter who became passionate about birds at a young age. In 1995, he suffered devastating injuries in a car accident and credited his birds for the progress he made in relearning how to walk and talk. That’s how the Wilson Parrot Foundation was born. It rehabilitates unwanted parrots and places them in loving forever homes.
Brian welcomes volunteers who aren’t afraid of hard work. Depending on one’s interests, duties may include feeding the parrots, helping with administrative tasks, and repairing the facility’s wooden structures. The Wilson Parrot Foundation is a 14-minute drive away.
