To provide a home for life for previously owned pet parrots.
The World Parrot Refuge (http://worldparrotrefuge.org) is located in Coombs, Canada, and is operated by the For the Love Of Parrots Refuge Society. Its goal is to provide a home for life for previously owned pet parrots who can, for whatever reason, no longer be looked after in their human home; and to educate the public as to the reasons why parrots do not make good pets.
1. Parrots are very long-lived, intelligent creatures that fail to thrive in captivity.
2. Many parrots in captivity are neglected or abused due to ignorance of their needs or intentional cruelty.
3. The public needs to be educated about the damage that improper feeding and care, neglect and abuse can have on these parrots.
