Our new mobile school program “Animal Clues” is an interactive educational program that is free to the schools. We get the students involved during the program with live ambassador parrots to teach students about adaptations, habitats, diets and other interesting facts about these beautiful charismatic birds. Approximately 15 parrots are brought to the school with over 10 different species from around the world. Students will be in awe as birds fly right over their head or talk and sing “Old McDonald” and do other fun activities that engage the students.

Chris Biro has made a career of flight training parrots. He flies parrots professionally as part of The Pirate’s Parrot Show. Chris’ show started out as a school program in 1991 in the Seattle, Washington area. Chris now lives in Arizona where he is working to help reestablish Thick-billed parrots into the wild between Flagstaff, AZ and Albuquerque, NM. He is now again bringing his knowledge and expertise of parrots to classrooms across the western US!

In order to fund this program, different photo opportunities with the birds are offered for a fee at the end of each program. Students can also participate in the $5 Bill trick in order to help fund BRI parrot conservation projects. This trick involves the student holding up a $5 dollar bill (or $20 if you like) and a sun conure parrot lands on their hand and returns the $5 bill to a jar. The money generated from the optional pictures and the $5 bill helps take care of our ambassador parrots. It helps parrots in the wild through Bird Recovery International
