Pirates for Parrots is a community of pirate enthusiasts,
impersonators, living historians, and reenactors who support and serve
Cape Fear Parrot Sanctuary by promoting and/or participating in fund
raising, educational, and awareness events that benefit the sanctuary.

Pirates for Parrots is not a crew, krewe, or club, and any pirate is welcome to participate by lending a hand at events or by promoting events and/or the sanctuary via social media if not in the immediate area.

The pirates who make up Pirates for Parrots attend events Cape Fear Parrot Sanctuary participates in such as festivals and expos, and we also produce our own family friendly fund raising events which are open to the public. Each winter we put on a benefit that includes entertainment and a silent auction. Each spring we produce Pirates Invade Cape Fear Parrot Sanctuary, a small scale pirate festival, at the sanctuary itself.

One of our fund raising tools is a children’s story series, “Pirates for Parrots Saga” written by Cape Fear Parrot Sanctuary Fund Raising Coordinator Sophia Cancelli, who is also the director of Pirates for Parrots.

Sophia is available for book readings and signings. We can also mount our interactive theatrical version of the first two books in the series, “Parrots of the Cape Fear and Curse of the Sea Witch”, at festivals, libraries, museums, etc. Our stage show is suitable for children, contains an educational component, and also serves as a fund raising tool.

Please find us on Facebook and join our public group, Pirates for Parrots North Carolina. For additional information or to let us know that you would like to participate in one of our events, please email Sophia Cancelli at sophiascurro@gmail.com.
