Kids and adults both learn alot about parrots then you get to go and walk around and talk to all the different birds. Some have got alot more to say then others.
Parrots live a long time and so this couple rescues them when they are no longer wanted. They will also loan out parrots - cage and all - to lonely people who may want to have a parrot as a companion. It is not a place filled with greenery in an exotic setting. It is a large room with cages... More
Parrot Island has been a staple of our summer visits to Kelowna for years. The couple who run this refuge for unwanted parrots are very friendly and caring. Our children love visiting the birds and holding them too. We like the fact that we are supporting this cause.
