Owner description: Parque das Aves is a conservation project in the Atlantic Rainforest near Foz do Iguassu, Brazil. We take in birds which have been rescued from animal trafficking or are for some reason no longer able to survive in the wild. We give them a home in their beautiful native rainforest. We love huge aviaries. We think birds should be able to fly, and have a great social life, and feed on the best, fresh, organic diet possible. We then breed a new generation of birds which are capable of being released back into the wild (and we have a number of projects that do exactly that.) We also support projects and research throughout Brazil. We plant thousands of trees a year, restoring degraded Atlantic Rainforest. The Parque das Aves thinks that education is one of our most important tasks. Sometimes it's as simple as giving people direct contact with these beautiful birds. It's amazing what that can do. We also educate thousands of local schoolchildren a year in special programs. Thank you for supporting Parque das Aves. We couldn't do it without you.

“Get up close and personal with some of Brazils birdlife”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

This sanctuary is doing some really great work and deserves the support from tourists. You can walk through some of the bird cages and get very close up with toucans mootoo and macaws. Some of the birds are so used to humans that they don't fly away when you enter the enclosure in fact we were certain that some of them enjoyed posing for photographs!! The park is just across the road from the entrance to the Brazilian falls so you can add a visit very easily. My family could have spent a good part of the day here.

“Great park, not just birds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Very nice place, perfect combination with the Iguacu falls (only about 200 meters away). You can walk in some of the cages and come very close to tucans, parrots etc.

They have more than just birds, also some cute little monkeys, reptiles, butterflies (closed during our visit) and mosquitoes (you should use repellent when you visit the park!).

The park also has a small cafetaria with good prices

All by all, definitely worth a visit!

“A must see!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

This place was quite of a surprise. It all started as a private collection of birds and now grew to a massive and beautiful attraction. There are numerous birds exhibits with species that range from little hummingbirds to huge macaws - most indigenous from the brazilian rain forest.

“Much better than I thought”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I'm really glad we went here. It looks a bit cheesy from the outside but it is actually run by a non-profit organization that protects rare tropical birds. The exhibits are really well done and the park was much larger than I expected. They have these huge cages where you can walk around and see the birds flying all around you. There is also a nice little restaurant that is reasonably priced. There was a large gifts store with a wide assortment of keepsakes, etc. Unbelievably, they had what looked to be brand new and very clean restrooms. I would say you should allow at least a couple of hours to enjoy the park. Kids will love this place.
