Our Mission

At LRP, we seek to educate the public on the realities of parrot ownership as well as why it is vital to have appropriate laws in place to protect these intelligent and sensitive animals from abuse, neglect, and illegal trafficking.




Education for parrot owners, rescuers, and legislators is crucial to the wellbeing of these clever birds. When provided with appropriate mental stimulation, space to move and fly safely, proper nutrition, adequate sleep, and foraging activities, these birds can enjoy long and prosperous lives while bringing companionship and entertainment to their owners. 

Legislation that enforces proper standards of care supports our goal of ensuring that all those caring for parrots truly understand the birds’ needs and provide for them. In order to draft and enact bills that adequately address the complexities of parrot care, we need your help!
