Aves Sagradas

Countless birds suffer from captivity and abuse.


Our Aves Sagradas (Sacred Birds) project restores dignity and freedom to parrots, turkeys, and other birds in need.

Aves Sagradas works to restore dignity, well being and freedom to our avian kin in three ways:


In partnerships with Foster Parrots and the New England Exotic Wildlife Society (NEEWS), we provide education opportunities and community service to transform social values from bird possession to service. Our studies and publications inform policy to reinstate bird dignity and freedom.
