Avian Campaign Takes Flight
New bird habitats will be open to visitors year-round
The Avian Campaign has officially started and we need your help! The first phase of the Avian Campaign is to build a new 8-unit bird building to house our larger education birds in their natural habitats where visitors will be able to see them during regular hours year-round. The second phase is the completion of two flight cages for smaller and medium size birds. These flight cages are used as the last step before releasing a bird to make sure the bird can maneuver, hunt and survive on its own. We ask you to consider donating to the Avian Campaign and to watch our video on youtube by following this link:
