Come and hear what’s been happening at the sanctuary including the progress of the Capital Expansion Project! Enjoy a delicious lunch and mingle with Oasis staff and other parrot lovers. Don’t miss this event!
We are pleased to have wildlife artist, writer and conservationist Charles Alexander, present “Flight of the Castaways.”
Charles will share stories from his wild parrot research in the Rio Grande Valley of Deep South Texas. Now in its ninth year, his ongoing study across the Valley’s urban environment, just a few miles from the Mexican border, has revealed a surprising and colorful world of close-knit parrot families, territorial rivalries, hungry predators, and human-imposed challenges. Over the years, Charles has searched for Valley hotspots where the social lives and breeding behavior of native green parakeets and red-crowned parrots are best observed, getting to know and recognize individual parrot personalities, including naturally-occurring mutations never-before observed in a wild population. Time and again, the Valley’s wild parrots have demonstrated their always-compelling strategies for surviving and thriving within the man-made jungle. Following the free-wheeling flocks year after year has proven to be among the artist’s greatest adventures.
During the afternoon, the birds will be eager to see you. Self-guided tours of the outdoor enclosures will offer you plenty of time to meet, or reacquaint yourself with your favorite Oasis residents, enjoy lunch and mingle with Oasis staff and parrot lovers from around the country. A silent auction will be held, offering many items you will love! Bid throughout the day for the end of day auction closing.
