Hello, I am Peaches
Peaches is a Goffin's Cockatoo adopted at the same time as Houdini. She is very friendly and polite, murmuring a 'hello' 'how are you?' and wonderful 'I love you' to those she knows. Peaches is a special needs bird due to an injury that she sustained when she was a chick. At Planet Rehab we strive to place her in different environments that will strengthen her feet and help her to become more mobile. She is as happy as can be now at Planet Rehab, she loves to hang out in the Birds of the World enclosure with the Cockatiels.
Goffin's Cockatoos are native to Indonesia and are the smallest of the white cockatoo family and they can live to around 50 years old. As a result of deforestation to supply the world's palm oil needs, Goffin's Cockatoos, along with many other Indonesian species, are now threatened in their native lands.
