Breaking Ground

Dear Wonderful Donors!

Thanks to your incredible generosity, we are a third of the way toward our goal of a purpose-built nursery and rehab facility catering for the very different rehab needs of three broad categories of avian species: passerines (‘garden birds’ or ‘songbirds’), waterbirds (including sea, river, lake, estuary or marsh-dwelling birds) and of course the psittacines (parrots).

Since we have a third of the money, the obvious thing to do is focus on one-third of the construction. Given the proximity of the season, we have decided to work on the water-bird enclosure first. December and January sees many juveniles heading our way – mostly pelicans and cormorants. Up until now we have used our downstairs bathroom for waterbird rehab – it is without doubt the most photographed private bathroom in Belize! Along with a solid, concrete enclosure which will provide protection from the inclement ‘winter’ weather and the capacity to use heat sources (lamps and pads), there will be an outdoor weathering area and a fishing pool with aviary for the final stages of the rehab.

Once we break ground, we will post regular updates on Facebook and periodic reports on Global Giving. And be warned– we haven’t given up on the other two thirds of the funding!
