Emergency Preparedness Tips and Recommendations

All of the recent storms and power outages have led us to think about emergency preparedness and tips for what we can do to be ready in case we find ourselves in an emergency situation. Fires, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, snow storms, power outages, etc. can put our parrots in danger.

Items to have on hand:

  • Travel Cage
  • Enough food for at least 2 weeks
  • Bottled water
  • Blankets for insulation against cold

Considering a Sanctuary for Your Bird?

We see a lot of posts online by caretakers who want their birds to go into a parrot sanctuary after they are no longer able to care for them. While this is an ideal situation for some birds, it is not a suitable environment for every one. Parrot sanctuaries are often wonderful places providing the closest a parrot can get to living in a free wild native environment. They are often able to live as part of a flock of their own species, and be as much of a natural bird as they can be.
