was not planned. It just seemed like the right thing to do.

survival. The catalyst was the death of a Green-Naped pheasant
pigeon. She died suddenly and her grieving mate was inconsolable.
We tried to find a replacement, but the species had become so
rare there were only 32 listed in the world wide zoo data base.
Our search was ultimately successful and we emerged with a changed
perspective about the importance of breeding rare birds. Although
we were already one of the largest non-companion sanctuaries
in the US, we realized that saving individual birds was not
enough. We needed a more global view so that we could help birds
in a more comprehensive, significant and far reaching manner.

In addition to our expanded role in conservation, we remain
committed to providing life long care for the hundreds of birds
already at Pandemonium.
Pandemonium Aviaries is an all-volunteer organization. We are
a group of people who believe that all things are possible if
you start with pure motives, navigate with an ethical internal
compass and set course for a destination that benefits others.
