The aviary was created for birds which have been rescued by His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche and his students.
“The aviary was built to provide maximum comfort, enjoyment, safety and care for our birds. The beautifully landscaped interior has perches, trees, plants, Buddha statues, heat lamps, lighting, toys, and a feeding trench. The melodious chanting of mantras permeates the air, bringing blessings to the birds and insects within the aviary and its environs.”
There is also a smaller aviary, where they quarantine birds who are ill or who have been abused/neglected.
