Exotic Avian Sanctuary of Tennessee ( EAST) is dedicated to the rescue and protection of parrots living in captivity. We offer sanctuary to unadoptable parrots, as well as life time care to guardians that 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. We encourage everyone to appreciate and respect wild animals where they belong – in the wild.
