Mission: The mission of the Hyacinth Foundation is to eradicate the importation of the Hyacinth Macaw into the USA and to help promote improvements in captive breeding programs, and to aid in the rescue of Hyacinth Macaws that are unwanted or abandoned.
Programs: Programs will be added on at a later time where a bird can be sponsored. Additional programs may include using volunteer hours towards adoption of an available bird.
These birds need help and anyone who does this type of work can use any help available. I have birds from a rescue site and they are like a family member now. The Hyacinth is an endangered bird and here in the U.S. people just do not understand what is hapening to many species of animals. It is very hard to do rescue of animals, but birds require much more than animals such as dogs and cats. I personaly had 13 birds at one time and it is very expensive and time consuming. We had 30 birds come up for adoption in one month but had no room to keep them.
