In 2010 the species count at Birds of Eden is just touching 200. The bird inhabitants of the aviary comprise a mixture of exotic as well African birds (50/50). They also include previously caged pets and hand reared and imprinted individuals, this explains why some of our inhabitants (especially the parrots of which we have 60 different species)) are unafraid of human beings and seemingly tame. All new arrivals at Birds of Eden go through a process of rehabilitation before they enter the actual sanctuary of the main aviary. Be they ex pets, or birds confiscated from zoos or irreputable breeders, most of the birds that arrive at Birds of Eden have a history of being caged in small environments.

 

The main rehabilitation process involves socialization with other birds in large outdoor pre-release aviaries as well as the building up of flight muscles, and learning flight control, i.e. practicing landings, change of direction etc. Make no mistake! All birds can fly, no matter how badly their wings are clipped; the question is just how high and how far. Releasing them into the main aviary immediately, would be tantamount to running a marathon without any training!

The Touch a Monkey’s Heart Foundation (TAMHF) sanctuaries - named Monkeyland and Birds of Eden - provide the primates and birds who live here with a stable environment, one with permanence and where there is definitely no exploitation. At Monkeyland and Birds of Eden, care exceeds the regulations regarding animal welfare. Monkeyland and Birds of Eden is, most importantly, a place where primates and birds are rehabilitated both physically and emotionally.

 

At TAMHF we strive to achieve an effective balance between conservation and economic reality. It is therefore tourism driven and totally sustainable. A primate and/or bird safari is much more than just an unforgettable forest adventure; it is the vehicle that allows you to become part of our rehabilitation and care process. It is because of sanctuaries such as Monkeyland and Birds of Eden which go beyond idealism, and who strive to do something positive, that we can look forward to a more optimistic future.
