Amazornia Wild Parrot Site 
A web site dedicated to information about the wild parrots found throughout Orange County: "With (worldwide) numbers decreasing at alarming rates, wildlife organizations worldwide have struggled to save their natural habitats and do everything possible to stop the importation of wild-caught parrots. While this struggle continues, thousands of miles away from their native land in a most unlikely place some species of parrot have (not so quietly) made their presence known. Rumor has it that decades ago, an exotic bird smuggling ring was surprised and just as the authorities were ready to pounce, the wild-caught birds were freed. Another rumor speaks of firefighters responding to a call in a pet shop and rather than see the birds perish, the firefighters set them free. Though these rumors have circulated for 30-plus years, there are some that believe the wild parrots may have come here on their own through normal exploration. While there may be some truth to all of these instances, the wild parrots have undoubtedly been joined by others who were once beloved companions... Most parrot species, in their natural habitat, are gravely endangered due to the pet trade, habitat loss and other variables. The naturalization of parrots in California and Florida has shown there is hope that these incredible birds can survive among us. It is with this hope for the future that we ask you not disturb, disrupt, harrass or attempt to capture these free-flying parrots. Parrots mate for life and have deep emotional ties to their flock members. They would suffer greatly if not left to do what parrots do. There are several flocks (large and small) of wild parrots throughout Southern California and most people consider them enjoyable to have around. These birds, as all wildlife, greatly deserve our respect and protection. With sincere gratitude, we thank you for caring and for your continued cooperation." An article on the OC wild parrots appeared on the OC Register web site on June 13, 2006.

Laguna Beach Animal Shelter 
"The City of Laguna Beach Animal Shelter was created in 1975, by a group of dedicated volunteers - The Pet Responsibility Committee - who lobbied the City Council to purchase the former S.P.C.A. building on Laguna Canyon Road. The Shelter serves the residents of Laguna by providing temporary care for lost, stray and sick or injured animals rescued by Animal Services Officers within the city limits. At any one time the facility houses dogs, cats, and kittens, and a smaller number of other animals, such as birds, rabbits, chickens, ferrets, reptiles and guinea pigs. Every animal that comes through the Shelter is held for seven days for reclaiming by its owner. Because we are a small community the claim-rate is extremely high (80%)."  Laguna Beach
