Whether you are going on a dedicated bird watching trip or want to see birds as part of your family holiday, a visit to a bird park or sanctuary is a great opportunity to see birds up close.

A number of bird parks include free-flying aviaries so you can view birds as they swoop above you in an environment that is as close to their natural habitat as possible. Other bird parks are involved in conservation and breeding programmes so you can be sure that your entrance fee is being put to good use to care for wildlife and the environment.

A bird sanctuary offers an even better opportunity to view birds in their natural habitats and if you book an excursion you will be helped by local guides to know which birds to look out for. Many bird sanctuaries offer protection to some of the world's most critically endangered birds and tourism is essential to continue these conservation efforts.
