Cosmo is a blue-fronted parrot that lives at the Vancouver Aquarium. He resides in the Amazon Gallery,
which mimics the tropical rainforests of South America.
The colorful bird was formerly a pet, but the aquarium adopted him when his owner couldn’t take care
of him anymore. He is happy in his new home at the aquarium and has a found a great friend in Gino,
who is a double yellow-fronted Amazon parrot. The two birds enjoy singing together, but Cosmo’s

to new music and learning the words is one form of enrichment.
