When it is no longer possible to keep a large parrot in a home the Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary is a godsend. Because of bird breeders, many people now own Macaws and other large birds as pets. Often, after many years, these birds become too aggressive to continue as companion animals. That is when the large aviaries and expert staff at the Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary come to the rescue. We had to surrender Elvis, our blue and gold macaw, after ten years. We had originally received Elvis as a rescue, and as we had already had another smaller parrot for many years, we felt capable of caring for him. All went well until he reached approximately the age of 18 - our sweet bird became too aggressive to handle. It was heartbreaking for us, but we know he is happy and well cared for. It was very important to us that he would not be up for adoption. These birds live a long time, and there are many of them out there who will need the sanctuary this organization provides.
