Wing and a Prayer is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation for charitable, scientific, and educational goals. We rescue and rehabilitate
captive lorikeets, and we also study wild lorikeet populations for the purpose of conservation and scientific documentation. Why
is this important? Almost all lory and lorikeet species are classified as either endangered, vulnerable, or threatened. Without
conservation efforts, the extinction of some species is imminent.
Scientific Observation and Documentation of Wild Populations:
We are dedicated to the preservation of lories and lorikeets in the wild and the conservation of their habitats. Working with the
Société d'Ornithologie de Polynésie "MANU", we have focused efforts on the scientific observation, population determination,
and photographic documentation of the endangered ultramarine lorikeet in its native habitat of Ua Huka, French Polynesia, as well
as assist scientific documentation of the Kuhl's lory on Rimatara, French Polynesia.
