Raising money for 2 new waterblasters in order to provide our ducks with better daily cleanliness in their aviaries and houses.
It may not come as a huge surprise that Ducks are good at creating mess! (We still love them anyway!) We take in approx. 600 orphaned, injured and sick birds annually. We use multiple aviaries around our large property to house the many captive birds we are looking after. Part of the daily husbandry and care of these birds involves cleaning their housing/aviaries. As we cannot use chemicals in their aviaries to effectively 'sanitise' these areas, we rely on hosing to clean as much off the surfaces as possible, and on scrubbing brushes to clean bathing units etc. Even with this process, over time, a buildup of dirt and food develops, leaving the floors dirty and less hygienic than we would like and they will eventually smell.
We have previously used a water-blaster to remove this buildup, and currently require 2 new water-blasters to continue to provide an improved/appropriate level of cleanliness for the ducks overall. We are hoping to raise funds to purchase two new water-blasters for not only our Main Aviary but also for our Soft Release Aviary and the adjacent pens. We would like to provide each of these aviaries and the ducks living inside them the level of cleanliness that can only be achieved by using a water blasting unit.
Thanks for your support!

Directly to waterblaster purchase which will then be used solely for the purposes of keeping our aviaries at a high standard of cleanliness.
We have one! 19 February 2018
Thank you all for your generous donations.
With your help, we have been able to purchase a waterblaster that now can be used solely for the birds and their aviaries. While we ideally wanted two, we are beyond greatful for being able to purchase one and will now focus on other aspects of the rehab to fundraise toward. THANK YOU!
