There are many meaningful and creative ways to plug in to a non-profit organization you believe in—and The Birds of Paradise flying club did just that for us! In this blog, we share the story behind a very special “Birds of Paradise” alignment that resulted in a unique in-kind donation that helps us further our work and bring opportunity and much needed resources to our sanctuary and resident parrots.

On Father's Day, much of the world will take the time to appreciate the good work of fathers. While we show our admiration for our own dad’s, we’d like to take a moment to appreciate Meyer’s Parrot dad’s who work tirelessly to tutor their chicks in vocal learning.
Debbie Huckaby was the invited guest speaker at the June 20th Long Island Parrot Society meeting and she moved the crowd with her heart-felt second chances talk. As Debbie began, she shared a poignant moment as she stated, "My journey began decades ago when my love of parrots morphed into a hunger to give these captive exotic birds the love, dignity, and respect that they deserve. I started asking myself what if? What if I could create a world where second chances for these birds was the norm?"
Birds of Paradise is thinking about protection for captive parrots. As we recently completed two back-to-back emergency rescues of 41 parrots, we started musing about what protection exists if any for the captive parrot, what if there was a “Captive Parrot Bill of Rights”, and how the collective avian community can be the passport, spirit and the voice to a better future for every captive parrot.
