Remembering Alex



The Alex Foundation was established to support research on psittacine
intelligence and communication. The Foundation provides funding for Dr. Irene
Pepperberg's work with three African Grey's - Alex, Griffin, and Arthur aka
"Wart." Dr. Pepperberg has developed training techniques that enable Grey
parrots not only to produce but also comprehend and use English speech
appropriately. Dr. Pepperberg has also shown that these birds can perform as well as
chimpanzees and dolphins on many tasks used to evaluate intelligent behavior.
The hope is that demonstrating that parrots are sentient beings will encourage
responsible pet ownership, conservation efforts and veterinary research into
psittacine diseases.


This list's purpose is to provide you with Dr. Pepperberg's speaking schedule and fundraising events, and other special announcements. Also visit the
Alex Foundation web site
