The Russian. He lives near Moscow and works in one of the Moscow notary offices. Since childhood he had dreamed of a home bestiary, but his mother only allowed him to a dog and budgerigars. So at the age of 11 he began to breed budgies, and today, as he humorously recounts, in addition to his wife and two children, he has 3 dogs and almost 30 parrots. His favourite pets are African Grey parrots - his dream of childhood - Gregory and Ksjusha. Gregory is the most famous talking parrot in Russia and the Champion of Poland in the "Parrot Chat" 2015/16. In addition to them, Dmitrij is engaged in breeding African greys and Alexandrin parakeets.
Owner of famous Indian Ring-necked parakeet named Carol - the Vice-Master of Poland of the 2nd Talking Birds Championship "PARROT CHAT" 1999. Carol has become famous by declaiming Polish romantic poetry. Now, Mr. Zaręba is an owner of the Alexandrine parakeet named Arni (a contraction of Arnold), but his interest in birds developed also in the sphere of representatives of our indigenous fauna. That is why he can be met with field glasses when he is watching them in their natural inhabitat. Moreover, he constructs nest boxes and attaches them on trees, and in winter time he fattens birds on birdtables which he also makes by himself.

Nature is the only Power before which she kneels. She feels best in the garden where she easily recognises all species of decorative plants and weeds, and can talk about them for hours. Propagator of healthy life style and natural therapy. She is happy with every "convert”, especially when she notices huge impact of her methods on the persons' health.
Owner of Adrian the African Grey Parrot - the winner of the title of Vice Champion of Poland in the "Parrot Chat" of 2015/2016. At her home she talks not only to Adrian but also to her dogs and cats. She loves all live creatures. She always had a rich zoo at home. And recently, apart from Adrian, she has four Maine Coons and a moggy cat named Puma, whom Adrian often mentions in his competition videos. She thinks that she would be able to subdue the most dangerous of animals, and her unfulfilled dream for years remains to befriend a lion.
