Please be advised that Parrot Partners Canada will be closed to public tours due to the spread of avian influenza in Ontario. This decision is based on advice from our veterinary advisors. Our number one priority is the health and safety of our birds and we are taking proactive steps to prevent the spread of this dangerous disease.
Our on-line/virtual tours are still available, and you are invited to book a Parrot Pandemonium Tour here.
We thank you for your continued support and patience during this time and we will keep you updated as the situation progresses.
