About WAES

Our mission is to maintain a foster network that shelters, nurtures, and re-homes parrots while educating the public to inspire a lasting concern for the well being of exotic birds.

Wasatch Avian Education Society (WAES) is a 501(c)(3) foster-based nonprofit rescue who works with the community to help parrots by educating the public about their complex mental, physical and emotional needs. As Utah’s oldest parrot rescue, our ongoing rescue, foster, education, and adoption programs help parrots who are abandoned and, as our resources allow, those whom their guardians can no longer keep.

Our rescue and adoption process is sustainable and effective. Since 1994 we have saved hundreds of parrots throughout the state of Utah.
