Chessington Trains PARROTS To Carry WiFi Routers Around Park To Keep Guests Connected


Forget about the pigeon post - Chessington World of Adventures is all about the parrot mail thanks to a couple of colourful macaws.

The clever birds have been trained to carry the company’s wi-fi routers around the theme park, helping guests stay online during their visit.

Dubbed FlyFi, Mojo and Brindsley will carry the routers in their claws and beaks as they fly around the park’s new Explorer Glamping accommodation.

Chessington spokeswoman Megan Wilson told The Mirror: “We only develop skills that are part of their natural abilities, for instance they are used to using their powerful claws to hold food during flight, and this can vary in weight.

"We only ever use positive reinforcement in our training so Mojo was given a lot of his favourite treats while he learnt to carry the FlyFi device.”

She added: “It’s important for families to spend quality time together, but they also need to stay connected to others, so our macaws will be on hand to help.”
