Help us raise money for our Nest Box Cameras Campaign.
At the North Somerset bird of prey centre, we receive no government funding or hand outs and we are not a registered charity. However, we are a non profit making organisation which means every
penny that is donated and brought in gets reinvested back into the centre and helps care for all the birds and animals we have here.
We are fundraising in order to install cameras in all of our breeding pens and nest boxes so that we can keep an extra close eye on all of our pairs of birds over the breeding season.
Once installed we will be able to monitor everything from the eggs being laid, to them hatching and the chicks being born. As well as being able to publish the feeds on our Facebook page and website for you all to see, it will also act as an early warning system which will allow us to intervene if we really have to and possibly even save lives of the baby birds. Without our intervention two years ago, our red tail buzzard, Loki, would not be with us today.
Just some of the pairs we have here include snowy owls, barn owls, tawny owls, eagle owls, long eared owls, hawks, buzzards, kestrels, falcons and eagles. Imagine watching footage from all of these different species and knowing you helped with that campaign!
We do not normally ask for donations as that is not what we are about but on this occasion we feel this is something all our followers and visitors can get behind. It is hopefully something everyone can benefit from, be proud of and be a part of.
This target will allow us to purchase the specialist cameras we require, along with all the monitoring and recording equipment. We would love to have this set up and ready to go when our first pairs begin to lay at around February time.
We know sparing any cash can be difficult but it would be amazing if everyone could just donate a pound or two or whatever you can to help us reach our total.
