Nonprofit Overview

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've volunteered for Magic for nearly 3 months now! He is eccentric, selfless, and bighearted! I can't think of a better person for the job he does.

Last year I was fortunate to meet Magic when I dropped off several bags of parrot food for donation. Little did I know that his beautiful tropical santuary would immediately become my second home and the parrots my new flock of children. I've been volunteering a few days a week since the first day.
Magic's love and care for each bird is a bond like no other, and through his expansive knowledge of birds and their handling, I've been lucky to have forged a bond with several of the birds, and now sponsor a small macaw.
Because of Magic and the volunteer staff's loving care of the parrots, I would not hesitate to place a bird at Zaksee Bird Santuary if I was not able to keep it myself.

Zaksee is great! The man who runs this place really loves his birds and does everything he can to make sure they're healthy and happy. He needs a lot of help cuz he does basically all of the work whenever volunteers are not around. Please donate to this great nonprofit.

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.
