New Flight Cage for Rescued Parrots


After a week of arduous work and heavy rain, IFAW’s Disaster Response team successfully finished repairing the flight cage! Simoné and our other feathered friends are now one step closer to their release back into the wild. The flight cage provides adequate space for the injured parrots to regain their flight strength and endurance.

A big thank you to the IFAW team for the continued help as we work together to conserve the Dominican Endemic Parrots. – Machel Sulton

    • Hi Shan. Thanks for your comment. You do have a point! These birds are rehabilitated parrots, found after Hurricane Maria. A few of them underwent surgery to mend limbs, etc. The apprehension of the caretakers could stem from the birds’ fragility after these procedures. Just a guess!
