The umbrella cockatoo can be distinguished from other white cockatoos by his/her crest that rises like an umbrella when the bird is excited or agitated.
Umbrella cockatoos are extremely social. In the wild, one is never without a companion.
Wildlife Rescue’s Vision is that humans come to see that we are members of a vast life community, that we experience the proper gratitude and respect for this community, and that we live in a more appropriate and compassionate manner in relation to the whole.
WRR was founded in 1977 in San Antonio, Texas. Since 2001 its primary base of operations has been located on 212 acres near Kendalia, Texas, a property which was purchased through the generosity of three of our supporters.
