Australian Pet Industry News - Alex The Famous African Grey Parrot just died

The Famous Alex, The talking African Grey Parrot just died...

The world of parrot lovers will be saddened to hear that Alex who has been seen on TV and even U-Tube has died of unknown causes on 7th September 2007. Alex was owned by Dr Irene Pepperberg from the Alex Foundation www.alexfoundation.org which is a not-for-profit organisation in the USA. The mission of The Alex Foundation is to improve the lives of parrots in captivity and preserve those in the wild. Dr Pepperberg’s work with teaching parrots to use speech appropriately to show intelligent behaviour. Alex the famous talking parrot has amazed the world with his use of speech and ability to respond to spoken commands. He will be sadly missed.

Alex was very well known and loved here in Australia. The chat lines here are buzzing with tears. Alex will be remembered forever as will Dr Pepperberg's famous and valuable work with parrots.

For those wishing to express their condolences a group has been set-up you can join it by clicking here.

The Pet Directory extends their deepest sympathy to Dr Pepperberg and her staff and other parrots.

Rest in Peace Alex. We will see you at Rainbow Bridge one day.
