About our animals
The Animal Zone, based at Rodbaston College is home to around 600 animals from over 140 different species from meerkats to monkeys, rabbits to alpacas!
PJ, Ecuadorian Amazon Parrot, Amazona lilacina
In her younger life, PJ the Ecuadorian Amazon Parrot, Amazona lilacina, was kept as somebody’s pet before being donated to us here at the Animal Zone. PJ was joined here by her partner Duncan in 2014 as part of a European breeding programme. Her mate Duncan hatched at Chester Zoo, before being paired up with PJ in the hope that they breed and help save their species.
The Ecuadorian Amazon Parrot was classified by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as an Endangered species in 2014 as there were thought to be fewer than 600 individuals left in the wild.
In the wild, Ecuadorian Amazon Parrots are found only in 2 locations within the tropical forests of south west Ecuador. The wild birds in these habitats are still currently under threat from fire, illegal logging and poaching.
The perfect gift for the animal lover in your life and valid for 12 months from purchase, the money made from our animal adoptions contributes towards looking after our own animals, as well as endangered animals around the world.
A proportion of all money raised from animal adoptions goes straight to our conservation charities helping save animals in the wild.
Please note animal adoptions at the Animal Zone adopt the species and not a specific individual animal. Adopted animals, whilst grateful for your support, will stay with us at the Animal Zone. Adoptions can take up to 5 working days to process, while we aim to get orders out as soon as possible, at busy times this can take longer.
Animal Adoptions are available on all species listed on these pages. For more information on adoptions available or for special requests please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
