Fins, Fur and Feathers LLC proudly owns and operates The Parrot Lady of Washington. We have proudly been in business
since 2001 and have enjoyed tremendous success conducting shows on many levels of education. More importantly, Debbie Goodrich
drives such spontaneity in her programs, most people don't realize they are learning while they are being entertained. The
following web pages will detail all of the variety she has to offer. Be sure to visit the products page as she develops her
own line of natural enrichment and foraging products.
The primary goal of The Parrot Lady of Washington is to have fun teaching people about parrots. It is important people
understand that when it comes to parrots, there are many elements involved. Some of them involve their conservation, their
breeding, legislation, their care, their training, their typical behaviors, to name a few. To spread that goal, she has visited
schools, nursing homes, radio stations, bird clubs, banquet events, TV promos, the wilds of Peru, conferences, and legislation
meetings to name a few. Armed with this knowledge, she can help bolster the imagination in an educational setting or help
those in need of behavioral consultation in their personal home. The aim of this package approach ultimately is to understand
the uniqueness, beauty, intelligence and love of our chosen animal companions and the planet we share them with.

Debbie Goodrich has had extensive experiences with parrots for over
11 years. She first started her interest in professional training when she attended the University of California at
Santa Cruz. There, she got her Bachelor's degree in Psychobiology--emphasizing Animal Cognition and Behavior.
During her work at the University, she was specially selected to observe elephant seal behavior. She also wrote an extensive
essay on Dolphin Reintroductions which received honors as her graduation requirement.
Her professional work began with Rainforest Cafe where she was quickly
promoted to a Curatorial position in Seattle. There, she established relationships with AZA accredited facilities such
as Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium, Seattle Aquarium and Woodland Park Zoo. She is a professional member of IAATE(International
Avian Animal Trainers and Educators), an associate member of IMATA(International Marine Animal Trainers Association) and has
donated to such causes as the World Parrot Trust and the World Wildlife Fund.
She has done work in tandem with Dr. Donald Brightsmith in literary research to assist
in writing papers documenting parrots. Debbie has even gone to visit the parrots of Peru and the Tambopta Research Project
to observe their wild behaviors which she now uses to help aide people in advice for their own birds in the home.
