About Tropical Birdland

Tropical Birdland was started in 1982. When Richard Hopper decided to change his hobby into a business by opening his bird collection to the public. After an initial struggle with the council, Birdland opened its doors to visitors in 1984. With the new source of income the aviaries and gardens were soon expanded along with the introduction of rare species. Hand rearing the offspring of common species along with breeding endangered species became the main goal for Birdland.
Burglaries, vermin and disease problems caused Birdland to struggle through the 1980’s and early 1990’s; they caused severe and irreparable damage to the breeding birds. With time, dedication and money the problems became controlled.
Tropical Birdland’s enthusiasm has now established a wonderful collection of breeding endangered species. All kept in an environment as close as possible as how nature intended them to live.
