DUE TO END OF 2017 CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT, NEW TOURS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE BETWEEN NOVEMBER 13, 2017 AND JANUARY 20, 2018.
The Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary is open most days of the year and conducts regularly-scheduled tours for the public by confirmed appointment. During the tour, a staff member or volunteer will guide you around the sanctuary. On your tour, you will:
- Meet multiple types of parrots, including Amazon, Cockatoo, Conure, Eclectus and Macaw
- Understand what we have learned from the amazing 700+ parrots in our care
- Learn about the plight of parrots produced by the pet trade
The pace is leisurely, with plenty of time for questions and saying hello to our residents. The tours usually last about one hour. The overall route is on grass, gravel and concrete paths—so please wear comfortable walking shoes!
Although we do not charge for admission for private tours, we do ask for a minimum donation of $15/per person. Children under 5 are not suggested for this experience due to the noise factor, etc.
