Mission:

The Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary is dedicated to the care and well being of parrots and other exotic birds. We do not breed, sell, trade, or offer for adoption the birds in our care. Instead, we endeavor to provide them with a permanent home that allows them to mingle with other compatible birds in outdoor open-flight aviaries. We also strive to provide permanent, caring homes for birds with special needs, including those with physical challenges or behavioral issues. Finally, we are committed to raising public awareness regarding the moral responsibilities and physical demands of keeping parrots or other wild animals as pets.

Results:

We have made great strides this year in our Fundraising efforts towards the much needed expansion of FEBS! With your help we will be able to "Spread our Wings" in 2013!!!!

Programs:

Education, Great American Teach In, Internships for Future Avian Field, Fundraiser Events

The Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary makes as its mission the care of those exotic birds who are in desperate need of a new home for life. For Exotic birds this can mean a lifetime of up to 100 years, that is no small feat. FEBS is in the middle of a major transformation, which includes a huge new building that will support many current and future needs. FEBS is also building a state of the art special needs Macaw flight aviary. One of the first of its kind in the Nation. The problem of birds who live very long lives and are in need of homes for life is, as Dom Deluise so eloquently reminded us just before his passing, "reaching epidemic proportions". FEBS is fighting the good fight for our feathered friends. Bravo !

We had a cockatoo foor over 12 years. Due to a personal situation within our family, we moved out of our home to allow one of our children to move in. Our bird, Kyoshi, could not move with us. We found FEBS and felt such relief that Kyoshi would have a great home for life. My wife and I volunteer weekly plus I am on the Board of Directors. Thank you FEBS, Bob

My wife and I had a moluccan for 14 years when we decided to downsize and leave our house to our son and family. Kyoshi was part of the family but my son's wife did not want to live with a bird and we could not take him to our new home. We were blessed to have found FEBS; we simply would not leave Kyoshi with just anyone. So impressed -- we were just so impressed. We decided to volunteer on Saturdays feeding, watering, and anything else that needed to be done. Well, it wasn't long before I was a Board member; then President of the Board and VP of FEBS. It has been an honor to work with Pat on the business side of the organization. Her zeal for the welfare of the birds is beyond reproach. We look forward to many more years of working with the birds. And, of course, we have the opportunity to scratch Kyoshi's head every week.

I began volunteering with FEBS over two years ago and I currently have 3 parrots there - including my beloved Umbrella Cockatoo Polly. She had begun to lay eggs over and over again - along with feather plucking and screaming at certain times of day. I boarded her at FEBS when my family would come to visit. On her last time boarding I noticed that her plucking had stopped. After discussing this situation with Pat - we decided it was best to make her a permanent resident. She has stopped plucking and now has a sweet boyfriend to spend her days with. I couldn't be happier! She still recognizes me - and still calls my name when she sees me walking around the Sanctuary. I am currently the Secretary on FEBS board of directors. I volunteer, speak at local events, and educate the public about bird ownership.
