Parrots Forever
  • We recognize that companion parrots are not able to live a natural way of life and we are committed to providing the best possible life for captive parrots.
  • We believe that owning a parrot is a lifelong commitment and a promise of continual proper care to the parrot, it is an honor and a privilege, not a right.
  • We maintain that parrots are sentient, emotional creatures with individual personalities and not commodities or tools for human amusement.
  • We advocate responsible stewardship of all captive parrots through all phases of their life.
  • We promote ongoing education in all areas of parrot care and welfare.
  • We oppose the glorification of parrot ownership through advertisements, movies, and other media.
  • We strongly support responsible legislation protecting the rights, health, and safety of parrots living in captivity.
  • We do not sell, trade or use the parrots in our care for profit or commerce.
  • We do not breed parrots or place our parrots with people who breed.
  • We strongly oppose the mass-marketing and sale of parrots through pet stores, bird marts, and internet venues.
  • We strongly oppose the sale of un-weaned baby parrots and production breeding methods.
  • We maintain the captive breeding for the pet trade does not contribute to the viable preservation of parrot species and contributes to the suffering of captive parrots.
  • We do not in any way support the breeding of parrots in captivity as long as their are unwanted companion parrots in need of homes.
  • We strongly oppose both legal and illegal exportation or importation of parrots, and support efforts in all countries to prevent wild parrots from entering captivity through legislation, enforcement, and conservation policies.
