As well as a place to admire and breed beautiful species, and raise awareness of their conservation status, we started the World Parrot Trust ( to help the rarest family of birds, the parrots.

Since 1989 this charity has worked with 66 species of parrots in 42 countries, and advised pet owners on the best ways to give their birds fulfilling lives.

In recent years three species bred at Paradise Park have been included in release projects: The magnificent Red-billed Chough – native to Cornwall, it sadly died out in the 1970s, but a small number returned in 2001. Our choughs have been released in Jersey as part of the ‘Birds on the Edge’ project and can be seen flying free there for the first time in 100 years! The Blue-throated Macaw is the rarest macaw remaining in the wild – in 2013 we sent six young birds to Bolivia for the project set up and run by the World Parrot Trust. Another native species, the Red Squirrel, has bred regularly at Paradise Park with young released on Anglesey. We are hoping that a new conservation project might see them re-established in Cornwall.

Other conservation projects we support include Red Pandas and Barn Owls to name a few.

The studbook keeper who manages the movements of this species, which is listed as ‘Vulnerable’ in the wild, chose Magdeburg Zoo to receive the young Red Pandas.
