Known the world over for innovative and inspirational animal
presentations, Natural Encounters, Inc. has provided its
services to a variety of facilities around the world. While
each of these sites provides a different set of challenges,
one constant flows through all of them -- our show philosophy
and commitment to conservation.
Natural Encounters, Inc. is committed to connecting humans to the natural world.
Our shows, therefore, revolve around the natural behavior of birds.
You will not see parrots riding bicycles in a Natural Encounters, Inc. bird show.
Rather we strive to introduce audiences to free-flight and natural bird behavior,
which most people find more interesting and entertaining than birds acting like
The entertainment of birds "doing what they do best" is the
vehicle for a conservation message that is the underlying theme of every show.
We use only positive reinforcement training techniques.
This type of training yields the highest level of performance
from the birds, which are active participants in the training
process. As a result, Natural Encounters, Inc. is able
to produce shows virtually anywhere and incorporate structures
and topography of the site into the show.
Below is a list
of facilities where Natural Encounters, Inc. has produced
and presented free-flight bird shows. Please stop back
often; this list is always growing.
