Parrot Life® Behaviour and Training is a unique business to Australia and New Zealand, founded in Perth (Western Australia) in 2013 by Rachel Ward CPBC (nee Riley).
Parrot Life® primarily provides in-home behaviour consultations to companion parrot owners. The business took off quickly, and now offers online video consultations worldwide, and runs regular courses, seminars and workshop s. In 2016 we began an internship programme, which eventually gave us our second and third staff members, we also opened our Parrot Life® Shop that boasts a small selection of tried, tested, safe and high quality items and online resources.
We are now extremely proud to bring you professional training and behaviour modification for your parrots (and other avians), from our team of seven highly skilled consultants across Brisbane/SEQ, Sydney, Perth and New Zealand.
Another key service we provide is Avian Management services for captive institutions, and we have a strong focus on conserving endangered wild parrot species. Between 2013 - 2020 we worked closely with Kaarakin Black Cockatoo Conservation Centre in Perth and their fantastic black cockatoo rehabilitation programme, and are currently working with the wild Kākā and Kākāriki at the Cape Sanctuary, New Zealand. We are looking to expand our conservation work to further projects in Australasia on a consultancy basis in our other locations.
Our Mission Statement:
"To help all parrot owners/keepers communicate with, bond with and care for their birds to the highest possible standard through education, training and enrichment, resulting in the best possible life for captive parrots."
