Parrot Garden Safety Guidelines

To keep you and our feathered friends safe, here are a few things that you should be aware of before volunteering: Closed-toe shoes are required for volunteering in all areas. Sneaker,  hiking shoes or boots are the preferred footwear.  

  • You will always work with a staff person;
  • Parrots will bite to protect their “territory.” Keep your fingers well away from them, no matter how beguiling they may seem;
  • Before volunteering consult your doctor for more information about precautions you can take.
  • Use your good common sense.

Again, we so appreciate your interest in volunteering at our beautiful sanctuary! You may contact us at dorothy@parrotsinparadise.com and/or 808-322-3006.
