One legged duck friends!!!
These two go everywhere together and it really is the sweetest thing! ❤️
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 follow this link to our GiveALittle page!
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!
Ever thought about providing some Geese a forever home? If so, get in touch with us!
We have about 10 Pilgrim Geese requiring a home as soon as possible. They require a fair bit of property to roam as well as access to water.
Aside from that, caring for these guys is pretty straightforward.
If needed, we can organize transportation to a good home, so don't hesitate to contact us if you're interested in providing a home but you're not in the Wellington Region.
If you'd like more information on these geese, please contact us via the "Contact Us" form or our facebook page.
☞ And please help us to help the birds by passing this information along to any potential new goose owners you may know!
Many thanks to all of the kind and generous individuals who have made donations towards the purchase of a plaque for Thomas the Blind Goose.
We're so close to meeting our goal; won't you help?
Click here to make a donation!
When completed, the plaque will be placed next to the plaque for Thomas' mate Henry at Waimanu Lagoon.
Thank you all for your continued support to the work we do and the patients we care for. It is forever appreciated!
This little guy came in from Waimanu Lagoon with a group of birds suffering from symptoms of Avian Botulism. We are so pleased to report that he has made a full recovery and is now scuttling about in our Main Aviary waiting to go home. He's a bit nervous out there, as he's so much smaller than the other ducks in the aviary!
We will release him back at his home once we have ensured that there are no further health risks present.
