On estimate, Swans require over double the amount of resources compared to a mallard duck. Housing all 6 at once is causing a fast reduction in food as well as medication meaning orders are more frequent and overall, the cost is much higher so........
WE WANT YOUR HELP!
If you would like to make a donation towards the ongoing care of these swans, please click on this link to our Give A Little Page to make a tax-deductible donation.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, not only by the team at WBRT but also the Swans! Thanks in advance!
One legged duck friends!!!

On the topic of missing limbs...we are still fundraising for a 3D printer and are also in conversation with a university in regards to getting some skilled help with the creation of prosthetic limbs for ducks!

Please take a moment to help SAFE in their efforts to protect ducks by following this link to their website and taking action!
SAFE is working to institute an independent review of the injuries and suffering ducks endure during hunting season. This review would provide valuable data about the collateral damage caused by duck hunters, and is a first step towards eliminating the practice of duck hunting altogether.
Thank you for taking the time to help the birds!
It is early days but we are now working on various plans for incorporating 3D printed prosthetics into the treatment of birds in our care.
Although we are currently fundraising in order to purchase a 3D printer for our own use, we are also investigating the possibility of getting some expert help in this endeavor.
With your help, we can get one-step closer to something that has the potential for improving the quality of life for native and non-native species in the future.
If you follow this link to our "Give A Little" page, you'll find a fundraiser specifically dedicated to the purchase of a 3D printer; note that, as our plans progress, these funds might alternatively be used for materials needed for 3D printing done off site.
Thank you for your support - every little bit helps the birds!
