Astrid Garcia was introduced to Pelican Harbor by her “bird obsessed” son a little over 4 years ago when he was only 9. He fell in love with one of the ambassador owls at a bird festival.
When he got home did some research on PHSS and declared that this was THE BEST charity in the world and he was going to be part of it!
He started small by donating his allowance and built up from there to creating calendars, bags and other campaigns to help raise funds and awareness.
His passion for birds and his love of the Pelican Harbor has inspired the entire family and now his younger sister has also joined his fundraising efforts and his mother has joined the board.
The Garcia family moved to Florida from Panama in 2008.
Astrid works in telecommunication at Avaya and is a graduate of Nova Southeastern University.
