To safeguard our birds we are offering Pay It Forward rewards - to replace lost income from closing to visitors and cancelled fundraisers

by Blue Highlands Raptor Rescue in Brora, Scotland, United Kingdom

We're still collecting donations

On the 7th June 2020 we'd raised £12,360 with 172 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

 New stretch target

It's a big step, but hitting our stretch target will help with costs for building our new flight practice centre where recovering birds can really stretch their wings before wild release.

With hidden cameras, we will be able to remotely watch their natural movement and check if longer recovery is needed, or if they are ready to head for the skies, and freedom!

This would be the icing on the cake.

Covid-19 has wrecked the funding of non-profit animal centres like ours.  At Blue Highlands Raptor Rescue we haven’t received a single penny of resilience funding.

Injured birds can’t survive without emergency care, food, and shelter. Our small, dedicated team still works 24 hours a day, providing crisis care.  And, our conservation efforts for endangered species continue, uninterrupted.

Whilst in the annual frenzy of preparations for our seasonal visitors, Covid-19 hit hard. Dozens of fundraising events, all of our weekly educational talks, community visits and our "Meet the Birds" sessions, cancelled.  To add insult to injury, we had to tell our committed volunteers that lockdown prevents their dedicated work here as well.

There’s no denying, It HAS been really tough, but we have decided to do something POSITIVE!

Our Crowdfunder appeal will raise much needed funds to continue our work AND provide you with a pay-it-forward reward - details below this video.  We've included easy donation options, enhanced rewards, and some limited and exclusive offers.

Animals seem to pay the price every time - wet markets - abuse - neglect - deforestation - human impact.  Its especially hard for us to watch when we are specifically working with extinct-in-the-wild species.  




We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
