Causes: Animals, Bird Sanctuaries, Protection of Endangered Species, Wildlife Sanctuaries

Mission: Kindness, caring and compassion is what Zaksee Florida Bird Sanctuary is all about. We are here for parrots that really need a loving home. We have a safe haven for parrots that can live the remainder of their days in a loving environment. Our aviaries are extremely spacious which allows our parrots to fly freely and use those big beautiful wings extensively. Zaksee Florida Bird Sanctuary was established for one reason only, “to provide a loving home for parrots that truly need us.” The sanctuary is located on over 200,000 square feet of land surrounded by rolling streams of fresh water and luscious greenery. The ambiance of our sanctuary is breathtaking. Each and every bird on this property receives our undivided attention. We are not about numbers, but rather about providing each parrot with the attention they so desperately deserve.

Geographic areas served: Our beautiful and lush sanctuary is located in Tampa, Florida.

I can attest to the "Magic" of Zaksee Florida Bird Sanctuary, having left my 10 year old umbrella cockatoo, Cirque, in the care of Magic and his loving volunteers, just 2 weeks ago. This was one of the most difficult things I have ever had to do but after visiting Zaksee's, I knew it was the right place for my "baby" who had returned to plucking his feathers probably out of boredom. Zaksee's, on Gardner Rd, is the perfect setting for parrots; you really feel like you are in a jungle or rain forest! Cirque's favorite place to be is "outside" and now he can say it all he wants and enjoy being "outside" with approximately 100 other parrots who reside there. I returned to the Sanctuary twice after leaving him, to be sure he was adjusting well. I found Cirque and all the other parrots to be well cared for, loved and paid attention to by many, many people who love birds, just like I do! It was very reassuring! I have since returned to Virginia; Magic has sent me videos and photos of Cirque being "outside" and enjoying the beautiful Florida sunshine, screaming along with all the other parrots and truly loving life! Thank you Magic and your many volunteers for loving my Cirque, and giving him the attention he was so craving! I look forward to returning in the future to work alongside your volunteers. I am also signed up as a monthly financial donor, as I whole heartedly believe in the "Magic" of Zaksee's.

Magic made us feel very welcome when donating our Sun conures Suwannee and José. Ot was with a heavy heart that we had to let our birds go. Knowing they will be with a whole family of conures at Zaksee makes it easier. Thanks Magic!

My 2 babies now call this place home. I visit them weekly still and can say they are very happy. I looked at other rescues and so called sanctuaries. Nobody loves birds more than magic and i would put money on that.

A 5+++ is not enough stars for this sanctuary . Zaksee sanctuary has been an amazing home for our bird Teko. Teko was my daughter's bird but as my daughter got older she spent more time with her friends and school activities and less time with Teko. It wasnt fair to Teko so very sadly we had to find another home for him. However, finding Zaksee Sanctuary was a blessing in disguise. Teko has found a bird "friend". They are inseparable. I believe he is much happier at Zaksee Sanctuary. Additionally, Teko has received wonderful care by, Magid who loves each bird dearly. It takes Magid over two hours to feed and give the birds fresh water and he does it twice a day; and all along talking, and giving each bird individual attention. Awesome sanctuary!!!

I monitor all volunteer interactions through the PEACE Volunteer Center at the University of Tampa, and the Zaksee Florida Bird Sanctuary is one of our favorite community partners! The staff is kind and compassionate and their love for the work at the sanctuary is evident in every interaction. They are accommodating and simply excited to share their work with the community.

Thanks to Magic for accepting our African Grey into his facility. I know our Mickey is well taken care of and will be a very happy in his new home. Because of health issues with both my husband and I we could no longer take care of Mickey they way he needed.

An amazing place for my parrot. I trust Magic completely in caring for my bird and giving him the attention I wasn't able to give him. Here are some reasons why I love Zaksee Florida Bird Sanctuary: 1. Magic encourages me to come and visit my bird whenever I can. 2. My bird is in a large cage that he can fly around in. 3. My bird is never lonely and is always surrounded by people and other birds. 4. Magic does not breed or sell his parrots.

Our two birds have been at Zaksee with Magic for close to four years. I can’t say enough about Magic or the sanctuary he has built. He is the most selfless person I have ever met in my life. The birds are his life and their needs always come before his. He is always thinking of new ways to make their life better and more like their natural environment. Every time we visit all the birds look wonderful and so happy. They all love him and you can see it. Birds don’t pretend. He does not breed or sell birds. He is a one of a kind and truly amazing person. We are so fortunate we found him.
