The Issue: Tropical Birds Exposed to Elements

Feathered Friends Forever Parrot Rescue and Refuge recently built 23 outdoor aviaries for its tropical-bird residents, many of whom will live for more than 100 years. The aviaries are open on three sides to allow for summer sun and ventilation, but they not yet equipped to block winter winds. Since the birds are tropical, they are not naturally equipped to endure cold winters.

The Campaign: Building Winter Walls for Aviaries

If this Grassroots campaign raises $400, then Feathered Friends Forever Parrot Rescue and Refuge can fund solar panels and mounting hardware to install winter walls around one of its outdoor aviaries, which will protect its tropical birds from the impending winter-weather conditions. Each additional $400 raised will fund winter walls for another outdoor aviary.

Volunteers will install clear polycarbonate solar panels on the wire sides of the aviaries to provide power to infrared heaters inside the aviaries and block the wind. The winter walls will protect macaws, cockatoos, and conures from the harsh winter climate throughout the season, until it is time to store the solar panels for the summer.

Feathered Friends Forever Parrot Rescue and Refuge

Feathered Friends Forever Parrot Rescue and Refuge houses more than 600 tropical birds that have been neglected, abandoned, or abused. Those that are not suited for adoption live at the sanctuary for the remainder of their lives, on a 9-acre site known as Parrot Paradise Park. The park boasts 16 outdoor flights where visitors can interact with the birds, as well as trees and blooming shrubs to enhance the habitat for both the birds and human park goers. Most of the birds reside in 23 outdoor aviaries and 200 interior cages, where volunteers provide fresh food, fruit, and water on a daily basis, in addition to working with the parrots, cleaning cages, and providing tours for the public.
