Charity: The Alex Foundation

The Alex Foundation supports the research of Dr. Irene Pepperberg of the University of Arizona in her research into the intelligence, cognitive, and speaking abilities of African Grey Parrots. What she has learned so far has contributed to great advances in the treatment and therapy of learning-disabled children.

Dr. Pepperberg raises more than half of the money for her research herself, criss-crossing the country to lecture and give demonstrations—on top of her full-time research position!

The last auction we had raised enough money to support the salaries of her graduate students over the month of August, something that was desperately needed at the time. This is a unique opportunity for ordinary folk to support basic reseatch into patterns of learning. All contributions to The Alex Foundation are tax deductible.

You can also purchase jewelry I have created and donated to be sold for the charity. If you would like to learn more, Dr. Pepperberg’s web page is at:
