About our lovebirds
We have two pairs of lovebirds.
Our lovebirds live with our superb parrots, budgerigars and cockatiels.
How we care for our lovebirds
Our lovebirds are housed in our Birds of the World Aviary, in our arboretum.
They have a large outdoor aviary with mesh panels, with branching for perching and double mesh to protect them from predators.
They also have an indoor aviary, with nest boxes, perching branches and their feeding and water stations.
Our lovebirds are fed bird seed, and have access to the fruit and vegetables offered to the other birds in their aviary.
How you can help lovebirds
Although they are not threatened in the wild, you can help lovebirds by:
- making sure that you don't buy wild caught animals as pets
- making sure that you don't release pet animals into the wild
- thinking carefully before buying exotic pets - they can be difficult to look after and require specialist care
