Laguna Organisation

An organisation helping parrots in need. We arrange a veterinary check-up and treatment under the surveillance of MVDr. Lubica Nečasová and MVDr. Sebastian Franco, where not only a physical condition but also psychical is being evaluated and treated. The treated parrots are slowly joining flocks in the aviary or adoptive homes. Our scope is to provide care based on positive reinforcement in group Therapies and fun time. There is no way to heal an unhappy parrot, therefore, our priority is to provide our parrots happy life.

Urutau Chaco Animals

The Urutau animal rescue station was founded in 2018 by its current owner, Mr Holger Begen, the mayor of Filadelfia. Nevertheless, this facility was in fact open a few years earlier. It is located south of the Chaco nature reserve, from where the wounded or sick animals are being taken into care. Once the animal is fully healed, it is released back to the nature reserve. In case of permanent damages, the patient remains at Urutau animal rescue station. The most frequent patients are turtles, lizards, reptiles, armadillos, anteaters, various kinds of monkeys - often callitrichids, coatis, parrots, toucans,  the African wild dogs, cougars and jaguars.

Parrots attracted human attention since ancient times. It is well known that sailors used to catch these beautiful, colourful birds to keep them company on their boats to prevent severe loneliness during the endless journey. Nowadays, we admire the same way their beautiful colours, intelligence and ability to imitate human speech. Sometimes, we humans underestimate the high intelligence of these creatures. Often, we force them to live in our environment to please us and we "humanize" them without keeping in mind their nature. Parrots are intelligent and sociable creatures, that live in flocks or couples. Never alone. We humans, bring them into our homes mostly as the only pet. Not many of us transform our home to a so-called rainforest and imitate primary needs of these unique creatures. A great number of parrots are able to adapt to a human environment and live a quality life. Not all of them are this lucky though. There are several sad examples when the owner misjudges the needs of these intelligent birds. In these occasions, a beautiful, intelligent parrot is slowly changing into psychically and physically broken individual. That traumatize not only the bird itself but also the owner who then suffers from the sight of his pet bird that he got for his own pleasure and joy in the first place.  

Laguna Organization takes into care these poor creatures. Provides them veterinary care and consequently deals with their return to relatively natural habitat. Step by step integrates these broken parrots into groups whose purpose is to imitate a natural lifestyle and provoke a will to live. The cockatoo, African gray parrot, macaw and amazon parrots are the kinds most often taken into care by the Laguna Organization.
