BONNIE ZIMMERMANN: Director
Project Leader - International affairs, ecotourism, public education, avian management
Bonnie founded her first parrot non-profit organization, The Wild Connection in 2001, and in 2003 joined the Board of Directors as vice president of the Indonesian Parrot Project. She has been involved with parrots and cockatoos for over twenty five years. Like many people in the avian world, she started as a "pet owner" but gradually evolved to where she is today, working to promote education, rescue, rehabilitation and enrichment for parrots in captivity and developing programs to protect and study endangered parrots in their natural environment. After joining IPP in 2003, she co-founded Kembali Bebas with Dr. Stewart Metz in 2004. Kembali Bebas is an avian rescue, rehabilitation and release center located in North Seram, Maluku which to date has released over 1200 endemic species of parrots and cockatoos successfully into the wild. All releases were done under the guidelines of IUCN and CITES. Along with her work on Seram, Bonnie also co-leads the team with Stewart Metz working to protect and conserve yellow-crested cockatoos with a focus on the Abbott's cockatoo, of which there are only 20+ birds left in the wild on one small island in the Masalembu archipelago.

...
Founder of The Wild Connection, and Vice President of Project Bird Watch, Bonnie Zimmermann has been involved with the parrot world for twenty years. Like many people in the avian world, she started as a "pet owner" but gradually evolved to where she is today, working to promote education, rescue, rehabilitation and enrichment for parrots in captivity and developing programs to protect and study endangered parrots in their natural environment. Her passion and quest for knowledge about parrots led her to work at the California Exotics Clinic in Simi Valley, California as an avian vet technician, volunteer for the LA Zoo California Condor team, and work with indigenous American birds, as a vet tech for the Wildlife Waystation. To date she has worked in Central and South America, and Eastern Indonesia. She lectures at bird clubs, conservation organizations, schools and universities, and has written articles for Bird Talk, Companion Bird Quarterly, American Federation of Aviculture, and the Journal for the American Society of Aviculture.
Prior to moving to the Bay area, she spent eighteen years as a media and event producer in Los Angeles, producing commercials, television programs, and philanthropic events around the world. She is strongly committed to educating the public about conservation, protection of wild parrots, and rescue and rehabilitation of companion parrots through all forms of media and hopes to encourage the collaboration of knowledge between scientists, zoos, conservationists and aviculture. Bonnie produced Project Bird Watch's DVD "The People of Parrots of WILD Indonesia" and is presently editing their newest project "Return to Freedom.
