Let's bump this to the top.
• Do you want the parrots/tropical caged birds returned to Renaissance Island?
• Do you want the parrots/tropical caged birds to be kept OFF of Renaissance Island?
The last I heard, correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't "the majority rule?"

In government, or politics of any size, apparently what serves the wallet takes precedence over the good of those concerned.
I don't know the actual situation, other than what's been reported here, but you can likely bet on the fact that some arrogant money-bag with his too many gold rings and chains and overpriced cigar complained that his freshly coiffured wife didn't like the squawking of the birds and, well, you can figure it out.
For what it's worth, it happens on every level.
Example; a few years back the government here asks if the people of Toronto and surrounding area were interested in amalgamating to become a mega-sh*tty.... oh, sorry. My attitude slipped out.
A Mega-city. So, they spend X-million dollars to research and poll this, put it to an expensive referendum to find out that, no, we don't in fact want to amalgamate.
Two weeks later we're a super-duper oversized megalopolis.
Doesn't matter what you decide or vote, it's what the bucks say.
And I don't mean the male deer in the forest.
Personally, I'd rather hear the squawking of a million parrots than some of the other things one hears out there....that must be why we continue to go to the Tamarijn/Divi.

Aruba.... May 21, 2017, unless that lottery ticket hits.

The birds and flamingo for me made the island a treat. I loved feeding them also. Bring them back.
We will try to find out more details when we are at the Renaissance next week.
