FLOCK! 2023

Oct. 28, 2023


Full Students



Closes Oct. 27, 2023

Join us for the IAABC Foundation's first dedicated Parrot Conference on October 28, 2023 from 9:00am-5:30pm (EDT).

FLOCK! is for parrot lovers, parrot trainers, parrot behavior consultants, and people who are fascinated by parrots.

What does this mean for our attendees?  We're taking a deep dive into understanding the overall needs of the parrots we work with and live with, ranging from health, nutrition, age, safety, stress, enrichment and the family dynamics.  A solid understanding of the science allows us to operationalize it for our clients and improve the lives of parrots and their caregivers.

Here's a sneak peak at some of the amazing speakers and topics we have scheduled:

  • Dr. Eduardo Fernandez (Australia), speaking on the latest in his research on the impact of training on behavior.
  • Dr. Susan Friedman (US), presenting an Introduction to Behavior Analysis and Training.
  • Dr. Susan Orosz, DVM (US), addressing the connection between behavior problems and improving a parrot's overall health; regular vet care requirements; and fostering a solid relationship with your avian vet.
  • Hildegard Niemann (GER), discussing the natural behavior of parrots, social structure of different species, communication within the flock and how helping owners understand this helps them better address parrot's needs.

Make sure you FLOCK! with us and get registered today. You don't want to miss out!
