Meet our Educators! We have a strong passion for educating children and rescuing large birds! Our birds help out in our Awareness Assemblies!
This is BoBo. Bobo was extremely abused. He is only 5 years old and could live to be 80-100 years old. He was put in a dark closet for 5 years (In a parakeet cage) and given food and water about every other day. His owner states that he was too loud. Bobo's coping mechanism, for his owner bullying him, was to pluck his feathers. He is absolutely the sweetest bird and gives great kisses :-)!
This is Gumbo. She is 15 years old. She was given away because the owner had no time to spend with her, her clean up was just too much and she was too loud. Another sad story of a beloved pet trusting her owner-only to break her heart after 20 years.
Below is Baby. The most affectionate bird I have ever encountered. She pretty much has the same story as Gumbo. Gumbo and Baby are cage mates and get along very well with each other.
This is Sammy and Spanky (The Blue and Gold Macaws), Captain (Scarlet Macaw) and Callie (Green Wing Macaw). Every bird that resides with us has a very sad story. These babies are beautiful inside and out!
We currently have 21 large rescued birds in our program. They maintain a very healthy diet with lots of love, stable routine, vitamins, protein, healthy choices, freedom and the most misunderstood domesticated pets.
To maintain the best care for our rescues, the upkeep, food, toys, perches, etc. is approximately $1200.00- $1500.00/month.
