FACT OF THE DAY:

Shuka Vana,  Parrot Park or the Forest of Parrots, an aviary situated on the outskirts of Mysore in South India.   Over 2,000 birds live at Shuka Vana and, as the name suggests, the majority of them are parrots. The aviary was founded in 2012 by the spiritual and cultural head of an ashram (hermitage or a monastery.) In May 2017, the 1-acre wide and 50-meter (164-foot) high structure, which is located on ashram premises, garnered the Guinness World Record for having the most bird species (468) in an aviary.

Rows of enclosures, housing cockatoos, macaws, amazon parrots, parakeets, and conures (medium sized parrots), adorn the sides of the aviary. While some birds are allowed to fly freely during the roughly six hours of public access per day, others are kept in the enclosures for the sake of their safety and establishing proper feeding habits. Guests walk around on tiled paths, admiring Shuka Vana’s colorful inhabitants. the aviary, with an attached hospital where unhealthy birds can be rehabilitated.

The aviary conserves endangered and vulnerable birds that have entered the country through the pet industry. All the creatures brought to Shuka Vana were born and bred in captivity and it’s considered unsafe to release them into the wild. Their lifespan is also long, 60 to 70 years. Often people do not realize the care they need while purchasing them as pets.
