Richard Kooistra

Technical Assistance Provider

Richard has a background in Information Technology (IT) with an emphasis on web development. He discovered his love of parrots when he and wife Michelle - who also works with the WPT - began sharing their lives with a pair of cockatiels a number of years ago. He has been a steadfast volunteer for the World Parrot Trust for many years, beginning back in 2007 with his efforts to help build a new web presence for the Trust. He has graciously offered up his technical skills on many other Trust projects over the years. Richard officially joined the WPT flock in 2015 as a staff member, kicking off his new position with the launch of the re-developed website (Autumn 2015) coming full-circle in his efforts.
