Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals, Wildlife Preservation & Protection

Mission: The Bird Gardens of Naples is a non-profit organization whose sole concern is parrot welfare in captivity and conservation of wild parrots. We 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. We 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.

Target demographics: Companion Parrots through sanctuary, rescue, and educational outreach

Geographic areas served: Naples, FL

Kerri and her team are amazing! We were able to adopt our feathery friend Kiwi from them. They made the whole experience seamless. They truly love all the animals they care for.

I was amazed at the number and variety of parrots at the Bird Gardens of Naples. Everyone that's involved with this organization deserves a huge pat on the back for the work they do. Thank you for giving these beautiful creatures the love they deserve.

Great place to visit. Love to see the parrots in such a natural setting. Tour guide is very good at explaining the different parrots and their wants and needs. If you are ever in Naples be sure and take one of the tours at Bird gardens. It’s a treat for the whole family and I can’t wait to go back

I visit Bird Gardens of Naples whenever I go to Florida. I take the tour they provide and am intrigued by the knowledge of the tour leader. Going in the aviaries and feeding or handling the parrots is a pretty awesome experience. Can’t wait to visit again

Bird Gardens of Naples is FANTASTIC. Keri and her volunteers have made Bird Gardens an oasis for parrots who have found themselves in need of a place to call home. They are well fed, vetted, have plenty of toys, beautiful flights, ... It is a wonderful place to visit for both fun and education. Thanks for all you do!

Legitimate parrot rescues/sanctuaries are few and far between, but fortunately this is one! There isn't anyone that Keri at Bird Gardens of Naples wouldn't help in any given situation. Time after time, I have seen her step in and take care of the birds and their people in any way, shape, or form necessary. This sanctuary is solely funded by Keri's hard work and dedication and she spends countless hours working as a waitress to provide for all the birds under her care. Bird Gardens of Naples is well on their way to making a huge impact on the lives of both parrots and parrot people, but needs the support to continue on their mission. If you find yourself in the Naples area, be sure to look them up and pay them a visit. You will be glad you did!

One of the best parrot rescues in the United States. Every bird is loved and handled. The director knows each bird and they all respond to her. When you take a tour of the sanctuary it is so much more than you expect, you get educated on each species and treated to hands on with certain birds. The property is such a treat as well❣

Fantastic Operation! Keri really cares about her birds and was fantastic in helping us board our 3 macaws for almost 7 months while we were waiting on export permits to move them with us to a small island in the Caribbean.

This is the only rescue/sanctuary I trust. The director/founder is an extremely knowledgeable person with a great deal of compassion and integrity. The birds are cared for in the best, most professional manner possible, all are loved and given the best possible outcome based on what they need. I cannot recommend this organization highly enough.

Bird Gardens of Naples is a hidden gem tucked away off of Immokolee rd. 20 minutes east of Interstate 75. Nestled between Oaks Farm and Union Farm there are approximately 200 exotic parrots that reside on a rustic 5 acre parcel of land. Keri; the head caregiver and tour guide, will walk groups up to 20 people along a natural path pointing out native wildlife and the array of exotics that reside there. Every bird has a name and a story so if you want to book a tour on the website you and your guests can learn all about them. Tours are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. The native flora is almost as beautiful as the colorful parrots and Rocks the dog will probably join your tour. Give yourself around 2 hours for the entire adventure and be sure to bring unsalted almonds (the birds favorite snack) and bug spray. This is truly an amazing place. There is even a small picnic area with restrooms.

I started as just visiting Bird Gardens of Naples 5 years ago. I was so impressed I wanted to volunteer which I try to do for one weekend a month. Keri Lohrman, the CEO, is very knowledgeable, knows all the birds names and gives educational/conservation tours of the Gardens 4 days a week for those whom want to attend.

I have been there several times and Keri Lohrmann has always been there to help. When I had 22 quakers which needed a place to call home she volunteered her services right away. The flight that was built for there is beautiful and are living a great life.

Will go back again and recommend a visit to anyone in the area.
