Bird Trapped in Indoor Water Park—Help!

Check out all the details below and then click "Get Points" to submit a form for points!

Parrots are beautiful and highly intelligent birds. In the wild, they are never alone and will fly up to 30 miles a day through forests, foraging and exploring with their flockmates. But in captivity, they are denied the opportunity to engage in natural behavior and often become neurotic, sometimes fatally mutilating themselves.

Splash Lagoon, an indoor water park in Erie, Pennsylvania, has reportedly confined this parrot to a barren enclosure in a noisy, busy, chlorine-rich facility for years.

PETA offered to transfer the parrot to a reputable sanctuary, but our offer was declined.

No bird was born to live in a cage.

Please politely urge parent company Scott Enterprises to improve this parrot’s quality of life by providing him with enrichment like toys for playing, chewing, and intellectual stimulation.

Not sure what to say? Try this:

I was shocked to learn that a parrot at Splash Lagoon is reportedly forced to languish inside a barren enclosure with little to no enrichment. In the wild, parrots—known for their intelligence, curiosity, and desire to keep busy—form strong bonds in larger groups, roost in different trees, frolic, explore, forage, and fly for miles, reaching speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. I hope you’ll take this information into account and provide this deserving animal with the intellectual enrichment and stimulation that he requires. Thank you for your time and consideration of this important issue.

    I remember visiting Splash Lagoon several years ago, and poking my fingers into the cage and petting his head, and he seemed so happy for the little attention I was able to give him before a worker said I wasn’t allowed to touch him because he’s DANGEROUS. This bird that was happy to accept love is DANGEROUS? No. He’s unhappy.
