Naples Zoo, KC's Parrot 41 Bar & Grill partner for “Pints for Parrots” – Florida Weekly

Thursday, August 11, 2022

 
The Parrot is back and still helping their namesake bird. Created by Patrick Daly, one of the original owners of The Parrot Bar and Grill, KC’s Parrot 41 Bar and Grill carries on the tradition at its new location on east U.S. 41 across from the Collier County Courthouse. Naples Zoo is partnering with them again for the third Pints for Parrots event from 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20. This fun event benefits The Hyacinth Macaw Project in Brazil to help the world’s largest macaw which has faced increased threats from wildfires. KC’s Parrot will be donating $1 of every pint of beer sold and $2 of every custom blue cocktail. There will also be raffle prizes, a 50/50 raffle, and T-shirts and koozies to help these rare parrots.
Mr. Daly’s new venture is dedicated to his late wife Karen whose nickname in high school was K.C. “Her favorite local charity was the Naples Zoo,” shared Mr. Daly. “That combined with her love of animals makes this the perfect event. So please come down and have a pint for parrots.” By just having a drink or buying raffle tickets, guests can help save these bright blue macaws.
“These extraordinary macaws especially need our help now more than when we had our first Pints for Parrots,” explains
Naples Zoo Director of
Conservation Tim Tetzlaff. “After a time of seeing growing macaw numbers, recent wildfires consumed over a quarter of the Brazilian Pantanal where most hyacinths live, meaning a likely return to endangered status.” One hundred percent of funds raised will benefit The Hyacinth Macaw Project and Dr. Neiva Guedes’ work in the Pantanal including their collaborative work on cattle ranches that provide significant habitat.
Along with directly caring for rare species, the nationally accredited nonprofit Naples Zoo has invested nearly 3 million dollars in saving plants and animals in the wild since 2014 and fully funds the annual salaries of 16 field staff in 7 countries. www.napleszoo.org.
