Generally speaking I do not enjoy seeing birds in cages or captivity, but if a bird is injured and rendered incapable of surviving on its own, such facilities display them and maintain them for educational purposes.
Such is the case for the World Bird Sanctuary. Many stunning birds call the place home.
