Summer of Parrots at Paradise Park
26th July to 3rd September 2019
Celebrate the colourful world of parrots at the home of the World Parrot Trust (WPT). Challenge yourself with our quiz, enjoy seeing a myriad of parrot species, plus opportunities to meet and learn about these intelligent birds and the amazing conservation work of Paradise Park and the World Parrot Trust.
See rare Blue-throated and Great Green Macaws, Citron-crested Cockatoos, Sun Conures, Mitchell’s Lorikeets and many more in their aviaries at the Park. Don’t miss the Free Flying Bird Show at 3:30pm each day (weather permitting) featuring many close-up experiences with parrots, on stage and flying free up high and between visitors on the picnic lawn. Daily feeding times with the Rainbow Lorikeets give an opportunity to get hands on with these noisy, nectar-loving parrots.
The founder of Paradise Park, Mike Reynolds, set up the WPT in 1989 with an ambitious vision: To help save wild parrots from extinction and to ensure that companion parrots live long, healthy and happy lives.
Over the years WPT has grown to become a global force that moves quickly to aid urgent initiatives and support long-term projects. In the last three decades the Trust has led or aided conservation and welfare projects in 43 countries for 70 species of parrot. Today, WPT is one of the world’s largest member-based parrot conservation and welfare organisations with national branches in ten countries. Its educational print and web-based resources are utilised by tens of thousands of parrot enthusiasts each month, and its uniquely effective approach produces substantial and long-lasting results.
