We cared for 385 wild birds needing assistance to survive because of human and natural events. Injured or orphaned or diseased, they received the best medical care we could provide.
Our volunteers have logged in over 3900 hours in the clinic - totalling almost $60,000 in unpaid labor. Transporters for short distances (under 25 miles) were valued at $52,000 and long distance, $28,000 for time and mileage expenses. Goods, food and services received were worth over $1000, not including the veterinarian contributions totaling over $4000.
We are extremely pleased to acknowledge these efforts to the total of $145,000
The Town of Oak Island made a donation of $1000. No other government entity supports us. Individual donors and organizations support us with over $12,000 and we make it stretch as far as we can. Because of this wonderful support, we have:
Done over 30 educational programs, reaching over 3900 children and adults.
Documented avian migration patterns, identifying possible toxins and human impacts.
In 2015, we look forward to a 15% increase in patients, expenses and hopefully your contributions to cover them.
