1988

Foundation of  Johanne Vaillancourt Avian Center (CAJV in french); and establishment of the first Quebec sanctuary for parrots. It was mainly devoted to the rehabilitation of abandoned parrots with diverse kind of problems (communication / behavior), in the aim of reintegration in family with humans. (Some painful memories of the sanctuary  remain - fortunately, many more happy memories. At this time, it was difficult to break down the doors (and prejudices). Fortunately today, parrots refuge can finally benefit from the help and support of the public... I feel I did not do all that for nothing!)

Accompanied by countless various other workshops, lectures, trainings, consultations, interventions, conferences, TVs pubs and stuff that I only have a (very) distant memory left.

Yep !, the CV is not complete, my memory is a faculty that forgets (too much I'd say)... it must be the age... Unfortunately, it was not my style to keep documents or traces of all my activities... Too late for "I should have..." So, I stop here... Na!
