6:57 am
but it's okay. >> reporter: so tell me about these guys. this place was all her idea. psychologist lorin lindner used to take parrots to another place she ran north of l.a. and was surprised how well parrots and vets got along. >> all of a sudden i see this transformation come over them. they would be holding the birds in their arms and calling them sweet terms and i hadn't seen that in the group therapy i'd been doing with them. >> reporter: so ten years ago lindeer in got the va medical center to give her enough land to set up a few bird cages. and with a budget based solely on donation, serenity park was born. >> hello. >> reporter: there's no hard scientific evidence to explain why parrots seem to help people suffering from ptsd. the thinking is that the traumatized birds and the traumatized vets share a common bond that somehow seems to
6:58 am
soothe their souls. hey, cutie. hello. hello. >> hello. >> reporter: let me just ask you, what would you say the people that say, come on, this sounds so hippie dippy, parrots and veterans,? >> do you have a dog? parrots are a flock creature. they imprint. they have social nuances that make they say, you are who i want to follow for life, and they're ma -- mow gnawing muss, pretty rare these days. >> reporter: but that loyalty can be a double-edged sword. parrots need near constant attention, and some, when left alone, will scream for hours on end or tear out their own fet centers desperation. harvard university researcher irene pepperberg says few people are prepared for a parrot in their lives.

>> imagine taking a five-year-old child, putting it in a play pen with a few toys and a few snacks for ten hours a day. it doesn't work that way. >> good girl. >> reporter: what's more, a parrot can be a lifetime commitment. >> because they live forever. i won't say forever, but 40, 50 years is very common. >> reporter: as a result, parrots can outlive their original owners, and those that do are often abused or discarded. most of the serenity park birds went through hell at some point in their lives, just like the people who now care for them. >> reporter: there is an unspoken communication between one sentient being that has sensed trauma and another. >> reporter: and you feel that? >> you feel that. >> reporter: serenity park operations manager matt simmons is a former navy man whose job it was to keep track of bomb damage and body count. parrots like phoebe here are helping him live with the memories. >> if you go to a shelter and you say, oh, i love that dog,
7:00 am
that dog is going to go home with me, that dog is more than likely going to accept that relationship. but with a parrot that can fly, lives in a huge aviary, has no other reason to be with you other than self-selection, when they select you, it's unique, it's special. and that's something a lot of our veterans and myself coming home didn't feel. >> reporter: who would have thought the most beautiful thing about a parrot -- >> do you want a kiss, phoebe? >> reporter: -- is its heart. >> good girl. good girl. ♪ saturday president park ♪ >> pauley: our destination is chicago. next.

7:14 am
beaches, tropical cocktails, and sunset cruises. at night there's fine dining under chandeliers or out under the stars, and if you're wondering how did a national park end up with a resort that feels like the kind of place a rockefeller would stay, well, it's because caneel bay is actually the kind of place a rockefeller would build. in 1952, laurance rockafeller landed on this stretch of st. john, the smallest of the three u.s. virgin islands. he thought this was one of the most beautiful places he'd ever seen, so he bought it, a lot of it at least. it's good to be a rockefeller. lawrence was the grandson of john d. rockefeller, founder of standard oil. his father, john d. rockefeller, jr., used some of the family fortune to purchase land to expand grantee on the national park and create acadia national park where i began this
7:15 am
year-long journey. and so laurance, while developing a luxury resort in the middle of paradise, began to get a similar idea. >> he thought there should be a partnership between commerce and conservation. and he built the resort with the idea that visitors can have the luxury of sleeping in a bed, but can still kind of experience the benefits of being in a natural setting. >> reporter: so everything we're looking at now is national park. >> yes. >> reporter: corinne fenner is a ranger at virginia islands national park. the first 5,000 acres were a gift from rockefeller. with assistance from local developer frank stick, rockefeller bought up nearly half the island. at a picnic on december 1, 18956, he handed over the land to the federal government, with one condition, that he would still be allowed to run caneel bay. >> well, caneel bay is definitely important to be sitting within the national
7:16 am
park. it's like a resort with a beach. >> reporter: nikolay hotze is the general manager of caneel bay, where the setting is the selling point. rockefeller designed the hotel as one of the country's first eco resorts. the lighting is low, the buildings are unobtrusive. >> the water is protected, so when you go snorkeling here, you will see it, it's protected. >> reporter: the water is full of sea turtles, and while the land is owned by the dependent of the interior, caneel operates under a lease, but not much has changed since rockefeller was in charge, except the prices. >> at off season you is say from $390 to $400. the high end is $1,800. >> reporter: the rooms of cottage 7 were rockefeller's preferred accommodation.
7:17 am
more recently they played host to stars like brad pitt and angelina jolie inch a way it was this hotel that kept the island from becoming a bunch of hotels. sitting on the edge of st. jon, you can look across and see st. thomas, and the difference is striking. on nearby st. thomas, development runs wild. but thanks to this chance visit by a new york billionaire, today nearly two-thirds of st. john is a national park. it's the virgin island that remained virgin, a paradise protected. >> pauley: ahead, a truly good sport.

significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless you doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. >> pauley: even the greatest of sports superstars have to retire eventually, and
