We've been caring for a record number of gorgeous kereru lately!
If you'd like to help us help these hungry kereru,
Any amount helps tremendously!
Please join us for a
🌱 Pop-Up Native Plant Sale 🌿
supporting the birds!
Sunday, August 2, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Crofton Downs Veterinary Clinic
4 Thatcher Crescent
Behind the scenes at WBRT,
thousands of young native plants are being nurtured
and are ready for sale...
and now is the perfect time to plant them!
All funds raised will go directly towards the ongoing care
of our feathered friends.
These happy, chatty ducks are looking for a place to call home!! 🦆
A coop to shelter them for winter,
a safe environment to roam in the day,
and regular feeds will see this domesticated bunch thriving!
They were previously abandoned,
then targeted with poison & found in a pretty bad way 😭
So we want to ensure a LOVING home is found.
Can you help or want some more info?
Message us on Facebook or email: email@example.com
Beautiful Kereru patient currently with WBRT. ❤️💚
We have successfully rehabilitated many Kereru over the lockdown period,
but their long stay, with medication, radiographs and fancy feeds essentially makes them “golden” birds!
Here’s where you may be able to help 🐥
We are a registered charity, set up with a give a little page, where even $10 contributes to the ongoing care of our feathered friends.
Whether it goes toward feed to make their meals or medication to heal their wounds, your donation is assisting their rehabilitation. 👍
Please help us to help them.
Follow our link today! ❤️ https://givealittle.co.nz/donate/org/duckman
Also a huge THANKS to those who have already donated.
It is much appreciated 🦆🐥
Thank you to the lovely cyclist Alena
who stopped for this beautiful bird and took the trouble to find it help.
Likely hit by a car, the goose was left on the side of the road to suffer. 😢
After the SPCA decided it was nothing they would help with, Alena managed to contact us, and with the help of Richard from H20 in Thorndon, we were able to get this bird to our facility, where it is receiving the care it desperately needs!
We can’t thank people such as Alena and Richard enough, for going out of their way and generously giving their time to help animals in need.
WBRT supports a full ban on duck shooting.
This may seem like an impossible goal, but we believe with enough people and enough voices, we can unite and come together to protect these innocent birds.
We spend our days dedicated to treating sick and injured waterfowl, and especially non-natives. We don't think ANY animal should fall victim to such a cruel "sport."
Please see this information from SAFE about how you can take action.
Happy Weekend, from just a few of the patients currently in our care!
Did you know, staff & volunteers are here at the WBRT facility
caring for our sick and injured feathered friends 7 days a week?

Perhaps you should consider a limited-edition duckling painting from WBRT!
☞ Update: Duckling Paintings are Sold Out!
Thanks so much for all your support!
Some of the friendly ducklings being raised at WBRT have recently been dabbling in the arts, and the paintings they have created are now for sale for only $30!
Painting with the ducklings enriches their day by breaking their routine and allowing to them to explore something unfamiliar. All paints are non-toxic.

are available, so act fast!
