I'm passing this along, if anyone can help, please contact Deborah....
"I am wondering if anyone has seen the gorgeous cockatoo that is a prop residing at Houmus House, the sugar plantation, just outside of New Orleans. This bird has been caged for 50 years and is starving for attention. While visiting New Orleans in May two of us visited the plantation and met the bird.
After showing him a lot of attention for about one half hour he began screaming when we walked away to leave the grounds. Broke my heart. I am uncertain if anyone has ideas regarding the bird and how to create a better existence for him, however, I promised myself the next time that I was in New Orleans I would attempt to help this bird. I am here now. If you have any suggestions please contact me. I am in New Orleans for about one week."
The New Orleans Vegetarian Meetup group will meet at least once a month to enjoy a vegetarian meal either at a restaurant, an outdoor venue, or a member's home. The group will promote the health and ethical benefits of a vegetarian life-style and host an annual New Orleans Veggie Fest.
