Unfortunately the lady, Wendy Huntbatch, who ran it passed away and no one was willing to take it over. While it had close to 1000 parrots at one point, It was not a happy place at the end but now all the birds have gone to other shelters in BC and many adopted while some have been re-adopted by their... 更多
Went with my two daughters. The place was highly rated and recommended by the local magazines and by trip advisor who posted it as open. When arrived the place has shot down!! Wish the trip advisor and the local tourist guides we're updated
We left feeling very depressed. The place was dirty although it did look like they were attempting to keep it clean. The worst part was that it was so crowded, some of the birds had plucked a lot of their feathers out, I thought that meant they were under stress, poor diet or other things. some of then would try... 更多
For everything you do for these birds thank you. So many needed your help. The birds seem happy and very well fed. Some have had so much tragedy in their lives. Worth the entrance price for sure, which is low enough you can also leave a donation.
I have visited this sanctuary many times... it is one of the highlights of the trips we take over to the Island. I am sad to hear that Wendy, the owner and bird advocate, had passed away a few months ago. She was unreal with the birds. Once she took us into the hospital wing and we were able to... 更多
Traveling through the World Parrot Refuge is an extraordinary experience. These birds are eerily smart & very intent on getting your attention. They're a world away from their homelands, they're ancient & they've been through a lot. I understand some other reviews discomfort: the onslaught of avian attention & loud calls is intense. It should be stated clearly: i would... 更多
We have visited the refuge 5 times in the last year. I commend what the people are doing there for the birds. In response to "Very traumatic experience" it saddens me that you don't understand about the refuge. The birds came to the refuge with the behavioural problems, plucking etc, NOT because of the refuge. Many of these birds were... 更多

These large bird's fly around freely in very large enclosure's There are also area'S where you can interact freely with a lot of the very large Cockatoo's. I noticed a very large number of Moluccan, and Umbrella Cockatoo's in addition to Citron & Sulphur Crested and a few Goffin's... 更多
Our visit to the Parrot Sanctuary was incredible. As you enter the enclosure you are greeted by many parrots, Some just walking around some sitting on perches. There were some who wanted just to cuddle. It was a little noisy, but it sure was an awesome sight to see. We are planning to go back in June/July this year.
