SANCTUARY.

RELEASE ISN'T FOR EVERYONE

Why
Sanctuary
.

The majority of parrots a the centre will be released. However, we occasionally receive a former captive parrot that has diet-related issues or has sustained injuries that make release impossible.

We are fortunate that we can give these birds a protected life with their own species in a natural habitat.

 

Our large outdoor sanctuary aviaries are carefully laid out to allow these compromised birds to move around and socialise without fear or threat. 

Who needs
Sanctuary
.

  • Compromised vision, usually due to head trauma or poor diet

  • Feet issues, often caused by bad perching or fighting with other birds

  • Damaged or missing wings. Most of our sanctuary wing injuries were caused by domestic and wild predators getting hold of the captive birds 

  • Those with deeply imprinted unnatural behaviours

  • Exotic (non-native) parrots brought into Belize under permit, and changes in the owner's circumstances result in surrender
