“October 2013 marked the date we went from being a backyard bird barn to a full- scale sanctuary,” Ces Erdman founder of Cape Fear Parrot Sanctuary said.

Over the past five years Cape Fear Parrot Sanctuary has taken in hundreds of abused, neglected, and/or unwanted birds.

“We have constructed numerous large scale aviaries where these beautiful creatures can live out there natural lives in flocks, eating healthy food and receiving medical care when needed,” Erdman stated.

He continued with a list for the next ten (10) years. He announced our vision for growth and continued care includes:

1. Purchasing five (5) acre plot of land on which the sanctuary is currently located.
2. Putting up a fence for safety and security.
3. Installing a septic system and well.
4. Further equipping our on-site veterinarian clinic.
5. Constructing an on-site restroom.
6. Constructing housing for on-site care taker.
7. Constructing an on-site office.
8. Expanding our educational and outreach programs.

The first step in the ten (10) year plan is purchasing the land on which the sanctuary currently exists. “We want to be good stewards of the land and the land is crucial for our continued efforts and mission,” Erdman said.

The non-profit has until spring 2019 to secure $25,000 in funding to purchase the land. “Our deadline to reach our goal is April 15, 2019,” Erdman said.
