Avian Influenza notice – updated 22/06/2023
Due to the ongoing avian influenza epidemic we currently have very limited ability to deal with gulls, as well as other seabirds and waterfowl. Enquiries regarding a sick or injured gull chick, our wildlife care department may be able to offer assistance. We are however at this time unable to assist with healthy gull chicks that are simply in the wrong place. This is a very difficult situation for us. but we have to consider the consequences that an infected bird would have for all other animals on site. Like everyone else we hope this situation changes soon. Your understanding is much appreciated.
Our rehabilitation building is in urgent need of repairs. Can you help us get it ready for this year’s orphans and casualties?
Worn tiles need replacing with concrete floors for easy cleaning and better drainage. New windows need fitting to provide ventilation and natural light. A dehumidifier system will prevent damp in the colder months.
This vital work needs to be done this Spring before the building is needed for the hundreds of animals we expect to help every month. Please help with the repairs by supporting our “Make Do and Mend” appeal.
