“The Birds of Pandemonium does for rare birds what Susan Orlean’s The Orchid Thief did for rare orchids, Joy Adamson’s Born Free did for lions, and Jane Goodall did for chimpanzees and apes . . .
— Heller McAlpin, NPR.org
 

 

Pandemonium Aviaries is a 501(c) 3 non profit conservation organization specializing in birds. We are a Living Species Bank. We protect bird species by “banking” living birds and growing their numbers. 

Keeping the birds alive is not enough. We also preserve their “culture” by how we raise them. Our intent is to one day return these birds to the wild when it is safe to do so.  They will need learned as well as innate skills to survive. 

We think outside of the cage. Sometimes we take a traditional conservation method and use it in an innovative way. Or use an overlooked resource that others have by-passed. And yes, we do want our birds to be out of cages. That’s what Project Fly Free is all about.

A NOVEL APPROACH

Why wait? We start protection while we can still get the numbers and biodiversity to ensure healthy breeding populations. Read More >

SAVING THE CROWN PIGEONS

The Crown pigeons of New Guinea are one of the species in our Living Species Bank. Hard to say which is more amazing: the drumming sounds they make or their feather “crowns” or that they wag their tails like puppies.

 
 
 
 
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

The Dodo went extinct in 80 years. We can’t let this happen to the modern-day Dodo, the Crown Pigeons.

Donate $80 and we'll send you a Dodo toy as a thank you
