World's largest sanctuary

Postby Pajarita » Sun Oct 01, 2017 10:22 am

This place has over 2,000 birds and it's actually listed in Guinness. But, as most of you know, I don't agree with having so many birds in any one place because, so far, this kind of thing never works out in the long term.

Ive seen this online. I want to visit. It appears to be a great dream, within the horrors of parrot rescue life. But, I too have wondered about their future.

That's exactly my problem with these large rescues... once the owner/director/whatever dies, the whole thing goes down the drain and the ones to suffer are the poor animals! Besides, as we all know, parrots bred for the pet trade imprint to people and NEED to have a human of their own to love and there are NEVER enough steady, long-term volunteers for sooooo many birds!
