World Parrot TrustNearly one-third of all parrot species are threatened in the wild. And millions of pet parrots share our lives and homes.

As a leader in parrot conservation and welfare, the World Parrot Trust works with parrot enthusiasts, researchers, local communities and government leaders to encourage effective solutions that protect parrots.

To do this, we focus on:

  • Conducting and supporting field conservation projects,
  • Working to eliminate the international trade in wild caught parrots and;
  • Increasing awareness of the plight of parrots, in the wild and in captivity.

In recent years we have achieved remarkable and positive results in our efforts for parrot conservation and welfare; work made possible by the generous support of members and donors like you.
