Bird is the word. Biggy Pop, the feathered bestie and avian son of The Godfather of Punk, Iggy Pop, is the founding Patron of Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital. “I’m a bird, and a real wild one, and I have many cockatoo cousins in Australia,” squawked Biggy, from his home near Miami, Florida, USA. “I was so distressed to hear that 180 million birds died in the catastrophic bushfire crisis that killed over 3 billion native animals in Australia.”
“Being Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital’s founding Patron means I can connect with and support my friends and relatives in the magical land of Oz.” 12 years ago, Iggy found Biggy stuffed into a cage, alongside some chickens, at a roadside vendor in a remote part of Florida. “He seemed to be in peril of a bad future. So we decided to take care of him, responsibly. And we have. He gets and gives a lot of love” says Biggy’s Dad, Iggy.
Iggy cares as much about wildlife as we do, so it made perfect sense for Biggy Pop to be Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital’s founding Patron! We are truly honoured that he’s the bird to help us spread the word.
