Name a Parakeet at Brookfield Zoo


Mother's Day is a day dedicated to honoring motherhood in all its different forms throughout the world. A celebration of those we call mom and all the amazing ways mothers support, protect, and nurture. If you're looking for a unique way to honor a mom this year, consider naming a parakeet at Brookfield Zoo!

That's right, you can honorarily name a parakeet inside the Hamill Family Wild Encounters parakeet aviary for just $10! Better yet, you can even visit the parakeets on Mother's Day (or any other day!) to say hello and feed them with seed sticks.

Your "Name a Parakeet for Mother's Day" package includes a Certificate of Naming that you can fill out and share with mom or hang on your wall as a reminder that a Brookfield Zoo parakeet now bears their name, as well as placement on the Mother's Day Parakeet Naming Board* outside Hamill Family Wild Encounters (first name only).

Your $10 donation goes directly to Brookfield Zoo's Annual Fund, a critical source of funding Brookfield Zoo uses wherever it is needed most. This gift allows us to inspire conservation leadership by connecting people and communities with wildlife and nature, including parakeets!

*For names to be included on the 2023 Mother's Day Parakeet Naming Board, donation submissions must be completed by 5:00 p.m. CDT, Thursday, May 4, 2023.
