Staff » World Parrot Refuge

By: World Parrot Refuge  09-12-2011

Our staff changes from time-to-time as folks come and go and move on in life. Working with free-flying flocks of parrots is a unique and often-challenging experience. Currently the Staff Supervisor is Stephanie Martin. Weekday staff includes Sasha Aubin, Fred Warnock, Robert Warnock, Kevin, Victor McLean, and on weekends, Francois, Amiee, Jeanine, and Ed Sandve. We hope to bring you more pictures and stories about our hard-working and dedicated crew soon!

One of our on-the-job benefits is having plenty of feathered “directors” watching your work. Here is a great photo of Sasha and friends representing the refuge at a local mall.

Al and Ria – two of our special volunteers who come in five nights a week from 5.30 pm to 9 pm to hand feed more than 100 incoming and special needs birds, and then take those who cannot fly out for a walk in the evening sunshine – made another huge commitment.
