What's On Our Minds
Birds of Paradise has long operated an emergency rescue program for distressed, abandoned and abused parrots. In fact, the sanctuary was founded on just such an event in August of 2011. This story presents a “birds eye” view of the most recent BOPS parrot rescue event, dubbed the “North Port 15”.
Birds of Paradise Sanctuary and Rescue is home to more than 300 parrots. Executive Director, Debbie Huckaby says,"We are a haven for exotic parrots from all over the country. Some come from abusive situations, some because of a death in the family, sometimes the owners just can't take care of the birds anymore."
Allison is a Mom to five children and “uber-guardian” to a menagerie of household pets. She has an acute awareness of the important role that children play in protecting captive animals and that they are indeed the next generation of animal and earth guardians.
