Rescue struggling with rescued parrots

More than 600 parrots had to be rescued from the World Parrot Refuge after the owner died. Here's an update.

Re: Rescue struggling with rescued parrots

Happy to hear that they have been able to rehome many of the parrots. The process is long, involved and their location limits the number of individuals that are interested in obtaining a Parrot.

Sadly, 2017 will see as many rescues fail as years prior. It all comes down to a rapidly aging population of owners who are unable to find young people interested in taking on this level of commitment in both finances and time.

Wild rescue organizations, which are licensed are faced with the same problems.

It's the same thing with breeders. And speaking as a young person who likes birds, it's not so much about "interested in" as "able to." My generation isn't nearly as financially secure as generations past. I'd love to both breed birds and run a parrot rescue (I only know of a couple places near me that take parrots and none of them try to rehome them), but at almost thirty I'm not secure in my career path, I can't afford a house, and I don't have an SO to help me in such a project (though I'm not sure my aunt's friend does either). I hope that what will happen is that eventually my generation will become secure in our late 30's/early 40's and be able to take over, but that's still at least a decade off, and the people who breed and rehabilitate parrots are dying and retiring right now.
