Other Ways To Support
Adopt A Bird
Your adoption of one of our beautiful birds helps Tracy Aviary provide the best in avian care including food, toys and more! You may not be able to take your new bird buddy home with you, but there are lots of benefits to becoming an honorary bird parent.
Working with Tracy Aviary, companies of all sizes can become leaders in conservation, inspire curiosity, and help us build a stronger community. Giving opportunities are flexible to meet your company's mission and your staff's interests.
Volunteers are a vital part of the Tracy Aviary magic. They enjoy hands-on experiences, meet others with similar interests, and help support one of only two public aviaries in the nation. Browse our available positions and choose one that’s right.
Conserve the Greater Sage Grouse & its Habitat
Utah is home to the ancestral greater sage grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus). The destruction of their habitat due to development projects and overgrazing has caused reduction in the populations of greater sage grouse. By depositing your token here you will be supporting the Wild Utah Project and Utah State University to study alternative grazing practices that we hope will benefit Greater Sage Grouse and ranchers.
Help Protect the Threatened Snowy Plover
North American numbers of the snowy plover have been declining for decades. In order to prevent further decline we need to understand more about the biology and ecology of this bird. By donating you will be helping to support research and conservation at four snowy plover wintering sites in Mexico, as well as the breeding sites right here at our own Great Salt Lake. The goal of this project is to provide a better understanding of the movements of the snowy plover in order to preserve it in all of the places it calls home.
Save the Endangered Great Green Macaw
This spectacular parrot is identified as an endangered species “most in need of protection,” having declined alarmingly due to poaching and deforestation. By donating you will be helping to support conservation projects in Costa Rica and Ecuador through the World Parrot Trust. These projects are responsible for raising captive bred macaws for wild release; monitoring and scientific research of released and wild birds; creation of education programs in communities surrounding release sites; and preservation of habitat.
