Austin Zoo


He’s an 18-year-old Red-lored Amazon Parrot and lives at the Austin Zoo. Parrots don’t make great pets because of their complex social and dietary needs. George has a slight neurological issue that affects his balance, so he needs to stand on flat surfaces. He stays busy by starring in internet videos and working with Girl Scouts. He might make their cookies. We’re not sure.

​​StoryBuilt is now sponsoring George at the Austin Zoo and will be hosting events for families. The zoo is a certified rescue and rehabilitation facility and it’s the perfect place for our fun-loving George. One simply cannot keep a bird this fabulous out of the public eye. He’s beautiful, charming, funny, and we’re all smitten.

Visit George.
