Uncle Sandy's Macaw Bird Park is a 501c3 corporation that is a sanctuary for exotic birds that have been surrendered due to life's many circumstances. The reason for their surrender is sometimes no fault of the bird or the companion that relinquishes the bird or birds.
We are home to over 150 birds of various species and sizes. We have anything from budgies, cockatiels, cockatoos, conures, amazons, various species of parakeets, macaws, peacocks, emus, and several roosters.
Our non-profit organization is run solely by volunteers (no paid staff), our income is all spent towards keeping the facility open and the birds cared for.
Hurricane Sally came through our sanctuary on September 16, 2020 – she was supposed to go elsewhere and be a small hurricane. Sally had other plans. She came to Pensacola very slow and very strong. As a result of this, many trees were downed on buildings, fences, and a few cages. Luckily, we prepared for the small winds that were expected as if it would be stronger.
NO BIRDS WERE LOST
due to the storm. We have a GREAT amount of cleanup to do. And many REPAIRS that need to be completed.
We also need to replace some buildings and purchase another shipping container for a second hurricane shelter for the birds. We would also like to purchase some folding crates and a large utility cart to help with transporting the birds from their outdoor aviaries to the shelters safely and with limited stress.
The birds at Uncle Sandy’s appreciate you taking time to read this – and considering on if you would like to DONATE to their cause. You can find more information about the birds and the sanctuary at www.macawbirdpark.org
