Sharon Dale, Curator of the Turtle Bay Animal Program watch as a young Lorikeet finds a landing spot after being released in their new habitat.
Parents and children from Buckeye School of the Arts were on hand to watch the release of Lorikeets at Turtle Bay.

Phase one of releasing two groups of Lorikeets into their new home at Turtle Bay was accomplished Thursday morning. The thirteen medium-sized; rainbow-colored parrots will be joined by the second group of fourteen in a week after acclimation to their newly renovated habitat. The Lorikeets are raised in captivity and come from two certified breeders in Florida and Texas. Visitors to Turtle Bay will be able to walk through the new exhibit starting April 16th. The official opening will be in May after all the birds have had time to settle in to their new home. Lorikeets are known for their bottlebrush-tipped tongues used to feed on nectar and soft fruits.
This is an amazing opportunity to view images that changed the worlds view of civil right in America. Charles Moore was a man with a social conscience that used his camera when words had little meaning. He forever changed what we know as documentary photojournalism.
According to the latest jobs report, the unemployment rate fell to 8.9% — a nearly two-year low.
One of the benefits of working as a picture editor over the years is working with talented photojournalist that really seem to understand the importance of what documentary photography can mean to the world.
The impact that documentary projects can make in our continued search for social equality and the understanding of what that means on both a humanitarian and environmental level is enormous.
Much of the significant journalistic work being produced today is by freelance journalists who try to find creative ways to fund their projects.
For one friend and former colleague, Caitlin M. Kelly, a small goal has been reached but we have two weeks to continue with our support for this and future projects. At a time when it is difficult to have faith in the economy when you can’t count on a future of employment, but…there is always an opportunity to put your faith in those who have a shared respect for those who walk our planet.
FUNDING FOR THIS PROJECT ENDS MARCH 19TH
