To encourage, nurture and support positive interactions, friendships, and relationships.
Council of the Birds will serve as a flock dedicated to preserving unity by addressing the needs and concerns of the animals and creatures in our forest community through intervention, mediation, and reconciliation.
Respect for individuals
We view others as having equal value and treat them with dignity.
Compassion and kindness
We demonstrate concern for others by always helping, but especially when there is a need.
We equip others to gain the competence to assertively confront situations and to demonstrate bravery when faced with danger or pain.
We encourage honesty, truthfulness and reliability in communication (words) and actions (behavior).
We inspire determination in the achievement of goals, endurance through difficulties and patience during adversities.
