COMMUNITY OUTREACH

PASSPORT TO A BETTER FUTURE FOR ALL CAPTIVE PARROTS.

Our community outreach is based on a belief that the collective “we” in the avian community are the passport, spirit and the voice to a better future for every captive parrot.

We encourage everyone to exercise their voice in the plight of the captive parrot through our platform of education and awareness.

We use multiple touchpoints to inform followers about parrot guardianship, adoption and standards of care. These touchpoints include the Birds of Paradise website, blogs, social media, sanctuary events and in-person events. Birds of Paradise avian influencers regularly contribute informative think pieces, showcased as blogs, that cover subjects ranging from protecting the captive parrot to how avian flight is informing the new wave of artificial intelligence drone and robot flight.

A New Kid On The Block

In 2014, during a visit to the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico, an ornithologist came across a new species of parrot with a completely different vocalization and color patterns from other known species. And that alone makes this discovery unusual... and controversial.

A NEW METHOD OF BIRD CONTROL

Birds. We LOVE them (especially our parrots), but sometimes when wild birds do what wild birds do they pose a danger to aviation, can be massively destructive to food crops and can spread disease from foraging in landfills.
