Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita)
Mia came to Animal Wonders in 2013. Mia is a huge football fan, often dancing and celebrating with her very own touchdown dance. Mia has become very bonded with Oscar the Amazon. They are very, very demanding pets and not recommended for a beginner to parrots. In the wild, the Sulphur-crested Cockatoo is native to New Guinea and Australia.
The beauty and genius of a work of art may be reconceived, though its first material expression be destroyed; a vanished harmony may yet again inspire the composer, but when the last individual of a race of living things breathes no more, another heaven and another earth must pass before such a one can be again. - William Beebe, 1906
We depend on our programs & donations to help fund the care and housing for our animals, most of which are either rescues or surrenders. We seem to be always taking in new animals that need a home or different situation, their care adds up. If you would like to help support Animal Wonders, it would be greatly appreciated. We are always in need of donations, caging material, lumber, crates, aquariums, straw, & newspapers.
