The Sanctuary

Feathered Friends Sanctuary is home to well over 100 bird species, ranging from the smallest parrots to the largest birds of prey. These birds have arrived at the Sanctuary from a variety backgrounds and circumstances. For most of our parrots they have been victims of the illegal pet trade or have been surrendered due to injury or other reason. For most of the raptors they have been victims of trauma, feral animals, or deemed unfit for release due to human interference. With nowhere to go and no one to fund their captive life, the team have raised much-needed funds to take them on and provide them with an almost wild life. The Sanctuary is designed to provide freedom of flight, through daily exercise and through our Bird Shows, School Programs and Hawkers Programs.

Feathered Friends Sanctuary is the only permanent facility in NSW caring for non-releasable birds and the only facility in Australia that maintains a purpose-built reserve for birds of prey. The Sanctuary is committed to the conservation efforts of Australian and Exotic avian species, through which our Breeding, Research and Recovery Centre has been instituted.

Feathered Friends is not Government funded. Everything we do relies on the support of the public, followers and our community. Feathered Friends operates under a large and dedicated team ranging from volunteers to students to staff, whom all tend to the birds under the guidance of the Core Handlers.
