We Need a New Building for Our Songbirds!

Each year, we admit hundreds of ill, injured or orphaned birds.

Although our current building has served us for many years, it had become dilapidated and must be torn down and replaced.

With only a few months until the busy baby bird season, we must build soon.

WE NEED YOUR HELP to build a new centre with improvements that will enable us to care for our little birds from nestling to fledgling to release.

Help us make sure every little bird gets the expert care it needs from rescue to release.
