The GSPCA would like to officially thank BDO Limited for their Charitable Trust donation which has enabled us to erect additional aviaries that will assist in the rehabilitation and release of the many sick, injured and orphaned birds that arrive at the Animal Shelter every month.

After hand rearing or the rehabilitation of the birds the GSPCA has to re-acclimatise them and the new aviaries are much larger and in a better location than those previously used, giving the birds a much better chance before they are released.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said 'We are so grateful to BDO Limited for this wonderful donation and Ali Bourgaize for nominating us as it has helped with something that will make a real difference to the birds in our care.'

'This time of year we are inundated with young birds and fledglings that before we can release need time to acclimatise and these aviaries will really help.'

Earlier this week Steve Byrne gave Ali Bourgaize, Client Manager from BDO Limited a guided tour of the new flights and Ali got to see the first birds to be housed in them.

Ali Bourgaize from BDO Limited said 'What a wonderful sight to see.'

'It was great to see the work that the GSPCA carry out every day and how we have been able to help them and all of the birds they have to care for.'

'BDO Limited is very proud to support the work of the GSPCA and we hope that with the help these new aviaries the birds in their care will have the best chance possible when they go back to the wild.'
