Parque das Aves

The bird park is just outside the Brazilian National Park.  We wouldn’t normally have visited but it was so highly recommended that we decided to take a look and we’re glad that we did.

Half of the birds there have been rescued from mistreatment including trafficking. After rehabilitation, where possible, they are released back into the wild. The park runs conservation  and environmental education programmes and participates in breeding programmes to preserve endangered species.

The gorgeous tropical species there are marvellous to see.

Next time we’ll tell you about Buenos Aires and how celebrated a big birthday!
