"Providing place, peace and protection for parrots in captivity and in the wild; working from the belief that all wild animals should live with dignity and freedom."

"For me, the sight of a parrot living alone, living in a cage, deprived of flight, miserably bored, breaks my heart. And the parrot’s too, perhaps." ~ Jane Goodall, Foster Parrots Supporter

New Construction at NEEWS

Good news from the NEEWS: we’ve officially begun work on several important construction projects that will allow us to improve our residents’ quality of life! YAY!

In order to complete construction in a timely and efficient manner, we need to close the Sanctuary to general tours until the end-of-June. Based on current projections, we anticipate that we’ll be able to offer tours again in early July.

Thank you for your patience and continued support during this exciting time!
