Bremen parrot protection centre
Germany’s only parrot conservation project: a flying enclosure for injured parrots and parrots with behavioural disorders, designed to reflect their natural environment.
Stretching across two 6-metre high aircraft hangars and an area of 560 square metres, the centre has been designed to reflect the natural habitat of parrots. It provides a haven for parrots who have been harmed by years of solitary confinement in cages or cramped aviaries, by poor diet and boredom or by being raised by humans.
There is plenty of room for them to fly; they can seek out partners and live in groups with their own kind. The lush vegetation of trees and shrubs allows the parrots to return to their natural behaviour.
The flying enclosure helps rehabilitate injured parrots and those with behavioural disorders and at the same time educates the public about the damaging effects that captivity and life as a pet have on them.
