LIPS is "for the birds" ~ We are dedicated to responsible bird ownership through education and example. Our members include breeders, pet shop professionals, and parrot fanatics who share their homes with multiple birds, and there are members who are proud to have just one special parrot.
We publish an award-winning, 10 times yearly newsletter, Long Island Parrot Beacon, packed with news you can use: Club information, photos, classified ads, event schedules and informative articles on bird care!
We are a non-profit, 501c3 organization (NYS Charities Registration No. 43-65-18) dedicated to improving the lives of psittaciformes through education, research, advocacy and service, to help prevent endangerment or extinction, and to create a shelter and adoption center for displaced parrots and other pet birds.
We support rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing efforts, and have contributed to avian shelters, veterinary research, conservation projects, post-9/11 funds and to the animal victims of Hurricane Katrina. We were also supportive to parrot owners devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
Our Parrot Placement Program is a liaison service where we search for a new home with eligible candidates while the parrot remains in his familiar home. Click Here for Complete Program Details.
LIPS hosts an annual Parrot Expo where you can enjoy lectures, vendors, raffle prizes and educational information. Our biggest event of the year!
