Our Mission & Vision

Primarily Parrots is a small private at home facility that is focused on the keeping, breeding, and educating (people) of one of the worlds most intelligent and charismatic creatures: parrots. We house over 20 parrots, many species of which are endangered and on the verge of extinction in the wild. We hope to increase the worlds population of these endangered birds through captive breeding while also working with in situ conservation programs on reintroduction and release of parrots back into the wild. Through our free mobile educational school programs, we also hope to inspire our future generations to appreciate the value of these amazing creatures so maybe they will want to work to preserve them one day as well.
