The World Parrot Trust is an international leader in science-based, results-oriented parrot conservation and welfare efforts.
The World Parrot Trust (WPT) is a dynamic international charity with a clear objective for the protection of parrots -- one of the most threatened groups of birds on earth. Since 1989, WPT has led conservation and welfare projects in 30 countries for 50 species of parrots, focusing its efforts on the deployment of immediate and long-term conservation strategies built on established scientific principals, as well as effective bird welfare advocacy efforts. Direct actions include conducting field research on little known species, supporting the rehabilitation, release and reintroduction of threatened and endangered parrots, funding the purchase of critical habitat areas, encouraging ecotourism, and facilitating educational programs locally and worldwide. To help achieve these goals the WPT works with local and regional partners including individuals, organizations, landowners, government representatives and indigenous populations. The WPT is a registered tax-exempt non-profit in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
