The Shukavana bird home has recently set a record for the most bird species in an aviary. The free-flight aviary has approximately 2,100 birds of 468 different species.
His Holiness Dr. Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji created Shukavana to preserve endangered species of birds. Next to the aviary is an avian hospital, where Dr Swamiji and his team of volunteers treat injured, sick and abandoned birds. Sri Swamiji has an incredible relationship with the birds and has trained many of them to talk and interact with visitors.
