Tour of The Bird Garden of Naples
The Bird Gardens of Naples is a non-profit organization whose sole concern is parrot welfare in captivity and conservation of wild parrots. They are an outreach and placement program which places into safe custody, parrots which are abandoned, abused, or in need of a home for any reason. Parrots are intelligent, highly social and complex beings with lifespans of up to 100 years. The individual bird’s best interest and well being of the present flock will determine if a parrot is accepted into the organization. They actively support networking with other parrot welfare groups, animal welfare organizations, the veterinary community, conservation organizations and the general public. Education is of the utmost importance concerning the well being of a parrot and its ability to successfully live with its human companions.

What to Expect
The Bird Gardens of Naples is located in the green space of Corkscrew Swamp with a variety of flora, fauna, bees, and butterflies. You will have the opportunity to see, learn, and interact with 100+ birds from origins around the world. If weather allows, groups can enter our large macaw aviary with opportunities to take photos and hold birds. Our guided tours last approximately two hours with two miles of walking trails. Please bring sunscreen, bug spray, and comfortable walking shoes. Also feel free to bring unsalted nuts to feed the birds, however, no peanuts as they cause diseases in birds.
The tour is free, but we will donate $10 per person. This donation will be greatly appreciated and go along way to help this organization keep the birds happy and healthy.
