The Tropics Exotic Bird Refuge has been involved with ongoing education programs for the last 11 years. Beginning as a part time endeavor, the program has since escalated to almost full time work, and is provided to public and private schools, church and senior citizens groups, professional organizations and individuals.
School children and adults alike learn about the work being done at the parrot refuge. In addition, they learn about specific species, their life both in the wild and in captivity and whether or not the specie is endangered. Geographical locations and the status of the rain forests and other habitats worldwide are also discussed. Students are especially encouraged to study about the parrots of the world, in hopes that some will decide on a career including rescue and rehabilitation of wild and captive birds.
