Integral Step in the Rehabilitation Program

Thanks to a very generous MARS supporter, we have received the rest of the funds needed to complete the Flight Cage. This is an essential step in the rehabbing of raptors and other large birds who require quite a significant area to strengthen and condition before being released. With huge wing spans, they need plenty of room to practice flying and maintaining flight before they are strong enough to go back to the wild. In the past we have had to transport these birds down Island to a facility with an appropriately sized cage. This is quite traumatic for the recovering patients and causes added stress to the already stressful situation of being in captivity. Now we will be able to see these birds through the complete rehabilitation process. The flight cage is due to be completed by mid January by BP2 Construction.
