Exotic Avian Sanctuary of Tennessee

Parrot Rescue and Sanctuary

Exotic Avian Sanctuary of Tennessee (EAST) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the protection of parrots living in captivity. We offer sanctuary to unadoptable parrots through sponsorships, as well as lifetime care to parrots whose guardians wish to give their companions sanctuary for life. We provide natural environments for enrichment, flight and togetherness of a flock, and outside aviaries for fresh air and sunshine. EAST also provides adoption services for well-socialized parrots who desire human companionship. We feel strongly about educating the public about conservation and environmental issues, and to inspire a sense of responsibility toward the care of our earth and our animals. Parrots and other exotic birds represent the largest population of captive wildlife in the U.S., and the need to protect them continues to grow. EAST opposes perpetuating the pet trade through captive breeding. We encourage everyone to appreciate and respect wild animals where they belong—in the wild.

Our sanctuary is located just outside Nashville, Tennessee, on five beautiful acres of fields with lots of trees and nature. For more information about what we do, our mission, our people and our plans for the future, please see our ABOUT page. To make a reservation to visit our sanctuary, please see our TOURS page.

Thank you for visiting our website. We at EAST hope you will find the information you need, while also discovering, learning, and better understanding the complexities of caring for these extraordinary birds.
