Parrots have long been known to speak to people in their own language and inspire with their beauty and vocalization ability. The Parrots for Peace are a family of five magnificent blue and gold macaw parrots symbolizing a vision of universal harmony between all sentient beings interconnected with Mother Earth. The Parrots for Peace (sometimes known as Peace Parrots) message is “May there be peace between all people, animals and nature on our one shared, irreplaceable home – Earth”.
The macaw parrots participate in numerous events and program promoting ecological awareness and world peace. Programs with the Parrots for Peace have included United Nations NGO-sponsored events for such programs as World Water Day; and The International Day of Peace; Universal Human Rights Bill commemoration (with a call to action to extend these rights to all of life). Additional programs attended include the Vigil for International Peace & Ecology; Water Not Weapons; We The World; Ecofest NYC; Earth Society; 350.org; World Peace Prayer Society; Universal Peace Day; Woodstock Walk for World Peace; Live Peace International; The Hudson River Clearwater Organization; the Peace Fair at Brooklyn Peace; the Culture of Peace initiatives; The Smile Revolution; Alliance for a New Humanity; and indigenous peoples’ Pow-Wows.
