My name is Gail Koelln, and I am Co-Director of One Earth Conservation, a nonprofit organization that engages people, communities and organizations in a unique manner that inspires them to contribute to their own well-being and the well-being of life on Earth. We achieve this by encouraging them to support and/or conduct parrot conservation in Latin America and to nurture themselves in nature.
I’m writing to you to introduce you to a new program we are starting that might be of interest to you and your colleagues, friends, and others in your circle. We call it the Parrot Conservation Corps or PCC for short. Below is more information about this program.
One Earth Conservation’s model of conservation, what we call Transformative Conservation, is highly relational. Transformative Conservation calls on us to grow healthier in our inner lives while also working outwards for the health of all beings, ecosystems, and human communities. Join our Parrot Conservation Corps (PCC) to help people and parrots where they are from where you are. The PCC especially emphasizes justice for human communities and health for biomes, the well-being of individual animals, and how to be able to do the work from where we are (during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic).
Our PCC seeks to meet these dire challenges of our times by giving people the tools, understanding, and ability to preserve life on this planet no matter where they are - at home or in the field. Join us and learn to be a parrot conservationist, become part of a vibrant and impactful digital community, and learn to “do the beauty that you are.”
To learn more about this program and how you or others can join, please visit https://www.oneearthconservation.org/parrot-conservation-corps. And please feel free to share this information if you feel so moved.
I’d be happy to answer have any questions you may have. Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
