About this Promotion

We received a grant of £5,000 to help with the refurbishment for a new café. Going from a grotty port-a cabin to a more modern family tea rooms, re-branded as ‘The Real Macaw’

Outdoor picnic area was refurbished with permanent gazebos providing further undercover area for seating and events

By Popular demand Tropical birdland decides to build the new outdoor Children’s play area, which to date is proving to be a great success. Other construction work that was completed in 2013 included the refurbishment of the ‘Walkthrough Aviary’ doubling it in size.

A successful free flying programme was put into place allowing some parrots the freedom like the wild. it was Richards original Blue and gold, Jackie that was the first ever free flyer. Over the next couple of years a large variety of parrots were trained for free flight.

Defra tries to ban free flying after complaints to environmental health. With the possibility of losing our zoo licence we decided to fight for the freedom of our birds. After a long struggle we provided enough evidence that non of our birds were breeding in the wild, that we had full control over the birds and they came back to their sleeping quarters, under lock and key every night.


Tropical Birdland helped a private breeding program with the hand rearing of a highly endangered species of parrot (The Hyacinth Macaw). After a couple of years all the hard work pays off, As a thank you we received our first Hyacinth, Darwin. With borrowed and donated money we were able to give Darwin a female companion.
