Biggy Pop, il pappagallo di Iggy Pop, è stato nominato patrono fondatore del Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital, di un’organizzazione australiana impegnata alla cura e alla riabilitazione della fauna locale che ha iniziato una campagna per costruire il più grande ospedale mobile dedicato agli animali selvatici di tutta l’area. 

 

Iggy ha raccontato di come ha adottato Biggy Pop: 

“Circa 12 anni fa, un venditore ambulante in una zona sperduta della Florida fece entrare Biggy, che era molto giovane, piccola caffetteria lungo la strada con alcuni polli. Il suo futuro sembrava in pericolo, quindi abbiamo deciso di prenderci cura di lui, responsabilmente, e così abbiamo fatto. Riceve restituisce un sacco di amore”.

 

 

Il pappagallo ha anche un profilo Instagram a suo nome Biggy Pop, dove è possibile vedere foto e video con il suo papà Iggy Pop.

Bird is the word. @biggypop, the feathered bestie and avian son of The Godfather of Punk, @iggypopofficial , 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." "About 12 years ago, a roadside vendor in a remote part of Florida stuffed Biggy, who was very young, into a tiny cafe alongside some chickens, by the side of the road," said Biggy's dad Iggy Pop. "He seemed 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." Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital Founder and CEO, Dr Stephen Van Mil: "When we heard that Iggy cares as much about wildlife as we do, it made perfect sense for Biggy Pop to be our founding Patron. We are over the moon and truly honoured that he's the bird to help us spread the word. Together, with Biggy, we're doing this #forthewildlife."
