Bird Trapped in Indoor Water Park — Please Help!
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.
WHOM TO CONTACT
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.

Dear Manager Wakinekona and Executive Director Pisano,
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.

my name is pteribird
and my humans and i
have to say,
NO parrot should ever
be treated this way!
we need special attention,
organic food and great care.
near us there can never be
chemicals like chlorine
we need a lot of time spent,
with you every day…
for grooming, love and affection
and we love to play.
yes we would be better off
if we were free,
but fragile sick birds like i
can only survive in captivity,
so please humans at
treat your parrot
and be kind.
and leave your neglectful
and cruel ways behind.
