About

The World Parrot Trust (WPT) has brought together global wildlife conservation and welfare experts to direct and implement effective programs to protect parrots. Our approach is rooted in science, and is based on decades of first hand experience in the field as well as a deep knowledge of companion parrot husbandry and care.

For wild parrots...
WPT moves quickly to address urgent issues and stays involved for as long as it takes. To effectively bring about meaningful and permanent change, multiple approaches are undertaken by WPT staff, and by teaming up with in-country partners and individuals. Efforts include groundbreaking field research, hands-on conservation programs, habitat protection, education and awareness programs, enforcement of wildlife laws, and supporting the rescue, rehabilitation and release of parrots caught in the illegal trade.

For companion parrots...
WPT provides caregivers with quality information on proper parrot care by publishing a range of print-based, multimedia and online resources intended to improve individual welfare. These resources reach hundreds of thousands of parrot enthusiasts each year, each striving to provide the best possible care for feathered companions. WPT also encourages the adoption and re-homing of parrots from sanctuaries, to help alleviate the problem of overcrowding in these rescue facilities.

Future...
We seek a future in which the world's parrots have the necessary and ongoing protection from human and environmental threats to persist and thrive in the wild, and receive the care they deserve from compassionate caregivers in order to flourish in captivity.
