Adopting a parrot is a massive responsibility. Even though many people feel compelled to help the birds in a rescue, some may not have the resources or long-term ability to permanently do so. However, there is still something people can do to help. Fostering is when a person takes a rescue animal into their home temporarily to help ease the burden of a parrot rescue that may be overcrowded. It can also help that animal get more individualized attention and care in order to prepare it for a new, permanent home.
Parrots call many places on Earth home. But no matter what species of parrot you look at, there are challenges that many of those birds face in their native habitat. One solution that is being explored is that of Ecotourism. In this article, we’ll take a look at what it is and how it can help parrots all over the planet.
Unfortunately, there are more Sun Conures living in captivity today than there are in the wild. This is due to a few different factors that have led to their numbers declining rapidly. Because of the threats that they face in their native habitat, they have been listed as an endangered species. So, what led to this situation and how can it be rectified?
“Why won’t my parrot stop screaming! I’ve tried EVERYTHING!!!”
Screaming, persistent calling, or whatever else we want to call it is one of the most common complaints and common struggles of parrot owners and sometimes it can feel like no matter what you’ve tried, you just can’t get it to stop. Well, the good news is, this behavior is VERY fixable as long as we provide the parrot with the proper environment and guidance.
