"The "Remembering Alex" can koozies were introduced at Parrot Palooza 2010 held at Bird Paradise in Burlington NJ, a 3 day event held from Friday, October 22nd to Sunday, October 24th. This event was held to raise funds for The Alex Foundation. 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.
I would like to send out a huge Thanks to Custom Ink for helping me turn my idea of this can koozie into a reality. From start to finish, communication was open, I received my order on time. "
