Lucky Parrot Sanctuary

County: Collier
Categories Environment

Lucky Parrot is a sanctuary for homeless, abused, neglected, or otherwise unwanted parrots.

Although it is not commonly known, domestic parrots are often released into the wild by owners who no longer want them. Many species have established colonies around the state and compete with native species for food and habitat. Here in Ft Myers, for example, we have colonies of Quaker Parrots.

Also,many people buy parrots without understanding the maintenance and attention they require; Lucky Parrot provides a permanent home and a "flock" for them to be a part of.

We currently house forty parrots, including Macaws, African Greys, Amazons, and Conures, who live in large outdoor aviaries.
