The goal of The Alex Foundation is to support research that will expand the base of knowledge establishing the cognitive and communicative abilities of parrots as intelligent beings. These findings will be used to encourage the responsible ownership of parrots, conservation and preservation of parrots in the wild, and veterinary research into the psychological diseases and care of these birds. Through these efforts The Alex Foundation, and the memory of Alex, will live on and will accomplish its mission to improve the lives of all parrots worldwide.


Wind Over Wings, Inc. is a nonprofit, wildlife rehabilitation and education center. Our goal in education is to provide a personal connection with wildlife that will lead to responsible stewardship of the environment. Our goal in rehabilitation is to release wildlife back to their natural environment when viable. Wind Over Wings became incorporated as a nonprofit in 1990. With the approval of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Connecticut’s Department of Environmental Protection, our rehabilitation and educational services flourished. We specialize in the rehabilitation of raptors, particularly eagles. We provide approximately 330 environmental education programs annually speaking with over 100,000 people not including television audiences. We believe that when adults and children make a connection with wildlife, intentional cruelty will lessen.
