Sponsor a bird unit

Bird with its beak open

Did you know over 75% of the arrivals at our National Wildlife Rescue Centre in 2018 were birds? This amounts to over 7,500 birds and covers everything from fledglings and nestlings to birds of prey. Many would not survive in the wild if they did not come to the centre for urgent rehabilitation.

Why sponsor a bird unit?

If you sponsor a bird unit at our National Wildlife Rescue Centre, you’ll be helping birds in urgent need of medical treatment and care. By sponsoring a unit, you’ll play an important part in their care until they regain the strength to go back in to the wild.

Thanks to your support, birds which spend time in the unit you sponsor will enjoy a healthy diet, excellent care and access to veterinary treatment until they can spread their wings and fly free.

What do you get if you sponsor a bird unit?

You’ll get a special thank-you letter for sponsoring a bird unit and a story about one of the animals we’ve been able to support thanks to you. Halfway through your year-long sponsorship, we’ll send you another update. We’ll also send you a copy of our twice-yearly magazine, where you will be able to read up on exclusive news and features about our work saving animals across Scotland.

How much does it cost to sponsor a bird unit?

It costs £70 to sponsor a bird unit for a year. You can also sponsor a unit as a gift for a friend or family member who loves seals.

If you choose to do this, we can send a special gift card to the lucky person alongside the gift pack.
