How Can You Help Parrots?

  • Learn all you can about these wonderful birds! Our fun parrot activity books below can be downloaded to help you do just that.

  • Tell your family and friends not to keep parrots as pets (if  you already have a pet parrot, please DON'T release your bird).

  • If someone you know is absolutely determined to have a parrot as a pet, ask them to adopt one from a shelter for pet parrots rather than buy one.

  • Raise money to donate to charities who work to keep wild parrots from disappearing from the wild.

  • Think about working as a wildlife conservationist or wildlife veterinarian when you grow up.
