About Avian Enrichment

Posted in General Information Pages

Photo of Deb with Skye and PeanutDeb White, the creative force behind AvianEnrichment.com, has had a lifelong passion for pet birds ever since getting her first bird at the age of five. Unfortunately, she wasn't smart enough to recognize this essential theme of her life until 1992 when she decided to kick the corporate lifestyle, radically change career paths and start over by designing and building toys for pet birds. Her first company, Super Bird Creations has since become one the the largest, most respected bird toy companies in the US.

Recognizing there was a need for a comprehensive approach to parrot enrichment and owner education, Deb wanted to do something more to help people understand the full spectrum of a pet parrot's physical, instinctual and emotional needs. The original concept for Avian Enrichment was a book. However, deciding it was more important to make sure as many people as possible had unlimited and free access to the most up-to-date information, the book idea transformed into a website idea.
