Keep safe, keep well, but don't forget your local rescue centres too...

March 22, 2020

Well there's not much else in the news at present other than the Coronavirus illness that is sweeping around the world at present. We truly do hope that all our supporters and their families remain safe and well and come through it all unscathed.


The work of the sanctuaries and rescue centres carries on regardless, although many that I speak with on a regular basis report a huge drop in volunteers, less casualties being admitted, and as a result, a huge drop in donations this putting their organisations' rescue and rehabilitation work in jeopardy.


In anticipation of a 'lockdown' being forced upon the UK shortly - similar as has happened abroad, we have liaised closely with some of the local rescues to try and ensure plans are in place to cope, and to relocate birds where necessary to improve conditions prior to release - and indeed make space as movements would thus be restricted.


If we are all forced to stay home - please do remember to support your local rescues where you can; they will all have the usual bills to contend with and, though likely a reduced intake of casualties; a considerable drop in income. They will also need the usual supplies so keep in touch with their websites and social media as many items can be bought online and delivered directly to them to support each organisation in their hour of need.


Take care, keep safe, and keep in touch with all.
