World of Birds

World of Birds - Atlantic Coast - Cape Town - South Africa
A pheasant from China...

The World of Birds is a centre that shelters many species of exotic animals that have been confiscated because they were kept illegally or just badly cared for. The centre has grown to include birds, mammals and reptiles.

Most of the species that you are going to see are not from Africa. They are from various places such as China, Borneo, Brazil, and Canada... There are in cages, but at least they are well fed and properly cared for. These animals can't be returned to the wild because of the costs or the animal's health.

If you are willing, try to identify each species and send me your findings by email. I will add that species name in the blog. I will put the little information I remember from reading the signs.

These cute little monkeys come from Brazil and are Squirrel Monkeys. They are very curious and like to play a lot. When someone enters the huge cage, they come to greet the person especially to look for food.
