Live stream event for https://www.wbrt.org.nz - raising funds to help with the care of injured and orphaned birds.
Wellington Bird Rehabilitation Trust specialises in the care of waterfowl, but also takes in all kinds of native and non-native birds.
What does WBRT Do?
- Many of the rescued birds brought to WBRT are injured and require special care
- WBRT looks after and raises a large number of orphaned ducklings
- WBRT is part of the captive breeding program for the Brown Teal/Pateke.
There are only abour 2500 Pateke left in New Zealand, and WBRT's efforts have meant that eighteen ducklings have been successfully released back into the wild!
Over 1000 birds a year are helped by WBRT.
Help us help WBRT! Please donate if you can, but there are other ways to help!
* Save newspaper, shredded paper, and old towels to donate
* keep an eye out for fruit and vegetables that may be discarded by businesses and could be donated instead - ducks love veges and fruit!
* Adopt a bird
