The Cape Parrot Project, our largest project requiring the most funding, has grown tremendously over the last few years and now aims to plant 1 million trees in the next 10 years. This is a community based project which aims to enrich the lives of the disadvantaged and impoverished communities who live within the home range of South Africa’s only endemic parrot; the Cape Parrot.
The Trust is registered in Wynberg, Cape Town, South Africa: IT 637/2010 and is a Public Benefit Organisation that can accept charitable donations: PBO No.: 930 033 261.
3 main aims and objectives of the Wild Bird Trust:
1) To advance the research in, education about and conservation of all birds in the wild as well as the related habitat.

3) To work with all interested and involved parties including government, private sector, NGOs, education and research institutions, aviculture and bird-watching sectors without losing objectivity and independence.
