Mission Statement
The Berkshiire Bird Paradise Sanctuary is a bird sanctuary for disabled and injured birds. We strive to give them a safe haven to live thrive and rehabilitate as best they can. We are dedicated to educating people to recognize the beauty of Nature's world which surrounds our busy lives. We are all part of the web of life and all life is precious.

We are one of the largest Bird Sanctuaries in the country with over 1000 birds and almost 100 different species. About 40% are permanently disabled and will be here for the rest of their lives

We like to challenge our disabled friends by designing their habitat to be as natural as possible and to make them work and climb and be productive. We custom design each habitat for their abilities.
