About Our Organization

The Bird Gardens of Naples is a nonprofit organization whose sole concern is parrot welfare in captivity and conservation of wild parrots. We are an outreach and placement program which places into safe custody, parrots which are abandoned, abused, or in need of a home for any reason.

Parrots are intelligent, highly social and complex beings with a life span of up to 80 years. The individual bird’s best interest and well being of the present flock will determine if a parrot is accepted into the organization.

We actively support networking with other parrot welfare groups, animal welfare organizations, the veterinary community, conservation organizations and the general public. Education is of the utmost importance concerning the well being of a parrot and its ability to successfully live with its human companions.

We have not only visited Bird Gardens of Naples, but have also placed several birds in their care. Keriellen and her family have created a desperately needed haven for parrots that are left with no where else to go. The parrots who live here are surrounded by natural beauty and given the opportunity to enjoy their lives as they wish. Large, well spaced flight aviaries equipped with water systems, natural perching and multiple forms of enrichment, as well as quality food and organic fruit grown on the property. The caregivers are extremely knowledgeable in avian medicine, nutrition and behavior and spend many, many hours a day with the parrots. Bird Gardens of Naples is a great facility and deserves recognition as a Great NonProfit. Bonnie Grafton

Amidst the sometimes exuberant squawks of over 200 birds at the sanctuary known as The Bird Gardens Of Naples, you will also get a feeling of peace. Like a meandering river, the paths that wind through the property lead you to many beautiful sights, laughs, and delights. The many native species of plants also lends to the beauty. It also helps all those beautiful birds feel more at home and secure. Keriellen has a kinship with the birds. You can see it, hear it, and feel it. You will leave the Birds Gardens Of Naples with a smile on your face, and wanting to return. Carol W.

After countless retreats to the Bird Gardens of Naples, it has become my treasure. I grew up rescuing and adopting birds so this place is a haven for me. As a photographer I’ve had the opportunity capture so many beautiful images at the gardens, where there are hundreds of beautiful and exotic birds including some rare and endangered species from across the globe.
