MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 15, 2004

June 26-28 Weekend Features Special Up-Close and Personal Visit

With World-Renowned Animal Explorer Nigel Marven

The June 26-28 weekend marks the start of a summer-long birthday party celebrating Parrot Jungle Island's One-Year "Bird-Day" at its new location between Downtown Miami and South Beach. Famed wildlife filmmaker Nigel Marven will be the party host!

Last year on June 28, Parrot Jungle Island opened the doors at its new location with new attractions and a new design. The Jungle is in full bloom now and there are more animals than ever to greet celebrants.

Parrot Jungle Island's summer-long festivities begin with a weekend "Bash on the Bay" with special entertainment and demonstrations. Shows starring Nigel Marven will highlight his animal expeditions and up-close encounters with all kinds of beasts as featured on Animal Planet, Discovery Channel, BBC and many other television shows. Marven will also conduct photo and autograph sessions and will lead the One-Year Bird Day Cake Cutting each day. Other fun activities, music and goodies for all ages will be featured throughout the weekend. On June 26 and 27, children will also have the opportunity to meet Nickelodeon's own Arnold from the network's popular show "Hey Arnold."

New exhibits, events and promotions will be added each week throughout the summer as part of the season-long celebration. As a special Bird-Day gift, Parrot Jungle Island is offering all guests the opportunity to upgrade their regular one-day pass to the "Summer-long Bird Day Bash" pass for just $5 per person above the regular one-day price and receive free admission to the park for the rest of the summer. That means that "Summer Pass" holders can enjoy "an Island of fun and a Jungle of a time" from June 21 through September 22, all for one great price!

What to expect at the new Parrot Jungle Island? Yes, there are beautiful parrots and exotic birds from the world over and Parrot Jungle Island's world-famous bird shows, as there always have been. But there's also much more including nature displays and new animals such as Bengal tigers, orangutans, Malaysian bear cats, Arctic Wolves, Komodo dragons, snapping alligator turtles and "Crocosaurus," the largest captive crocodile in North America that measures nearly 20 feet in length and weighs more than 2,000 pounds.

Parrot Jungle Island is located between Downtown Miami and South Beach, just off the MacArthur Causeway/I-395, 1111 Parrot Jungle Trail. Admission to Parrot Jungle is $23.95 for adults and $18.95 for children. Group and senior discounts are also available. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. - 6 p.m., daily.
