Caring for Birds

The National Aviary is the nation’s only non-profit, free-standing indoor facility wholly dedicated to avian exhibition, education, and conservation. The National Aviary inspires respect for nature through an appreciation of birds.

As a leader in conservation and education, we are dedicated to teaching people of all ages and backgrounds about birds, their habitats, the environmental pressures they face, and the critical role humans play in creating and mitigating these challenges.

Our diverse collection consists of approximately 550 birds of 150 species from 6 continents. Approximately 40 percent of the bird species at the National Aviary have endangered or threatened status.

Our walk-through open exhibits allow visitors of all ages and abilities to interact with free-flying birds and meet species rarely found in zoos anywhere else in the world.  Education comes first as our mission to inspire respect for nature through an appreciation of birds carries over into cutting-edge programs for children to teach them to protect and conserve our environment.

The National Aviary’s goals are to: provide high quality, science-based environmental education programs for diverse audiences; offer exceptional family recreational programs which incorporate interactive experiences with birds; sustain populations of vulnerable avian species and habitats through scientific breeding programs and targeted field research; and maintain avian welfare through the practice of advanced veterinary medicine and research.
