Desi Milpacher, Editor

Desi Milpacher grew up loving animals—rabbits, cats, horses and the occasional rescued kestrel were her companions.  She became a dedicated conservationist and naturalist.  Once in university she studied biology and other sciences, eventually graduating with a diploma in Animal Health Technology (AHT) from Thompson Rivers University in British Columbia, Canada. Most of her work afterward involved caring for companion animals. Then she discovered parrots, and once the bug bit, it bit hard, and as a result parrots have been part of her life for over 20 years.

Desi joined the World Parrot Trust in the early 2000s and became a volunteer. She joined the staff a few years later and now her work includes publishing the enewsletter Flock Talk, the WPT quarterly print magazine PsittaScene, website development and maintenance, writing, editing, researching and marketing.
