As the pandemic surges around the world for human beings it is inevitably having a knock on effect for the birds here at our Sanctuary.

Not that this virus affects birds themselves please note IT DOES NOT.

Covid-19 is a strain of Coronavirus and research to date shows that pets dogs, cats birds etc are not affected and cannot carry it or pass it to humans.

However, the restrictions on food availability in the supermarkets and online means that we also are now unable to acquire even the normal amount of food we purchase for the cockatoos.
For instance being limited to 1 or even 3 cans of sweetcorn per shop means the cockatoos are having to go without, we are unable to buy pasta or other dried goods such as fruit and nuts, pulses etc in bulk as we normally do.

Fresh fruit and veg are sadly becoming a thing of the past with them being so limited currently.

Even sacks of parrot food are being bought up at a rate of knots by pet owners.

Which all leaves the rescues to try and find some way of surviving at this tragic time.

We do not underestimate how hard it is for people to cope themselves right now but if anyone could spare a thought for the cockatoos and help us in any way we would be so grateful.
Any donation would be amazing, either food or monetary.

If you want to donate food for the cockatoos please contact us for details.


All the cockatoos here taken in by the charity are special needs in their own way.

Some are feather plucked in certain degrees, some are extremely noisy and that being the main reason they have been given to the Sanctuary. Some are disabled in various ways, some are aggressive in their own way with behavioural problems, almost like children who have not ever had the benefit of a good upbringing. Some are simply elderly or have been passed to us either because they are no longer wanted or through family bereavements.

One thing they all have in common however is that they need a permanent secure environment in which to live out their days. We try to offer that with outside and inside aviary accommodation.

Our inside quarters are heated should the temperature drop during the cold months of the year and we offer the cockatoos space to fly, many of which have never had that opportunity previously having spent decades even in a cage environment. We provide a good varied diet and enrichment with branches to chew and ropes and fresh bamboo. The inside quarters have toys and food, lighting and heating (as above).

All the cockatoos remain here for their respective lives – we do not rehome or foster out these birds which have already experienced a difficult time.

We do not receive any government funding and we rely on public generosity to enable our charity to continue taking in these birds and providing them with the best life we possibly can.

Please see all the ways you can donate and help the cockatoos. Thank you.
