Tomorrow volunteers are working hard to spruce up our big old barn built in the 1920s, so that all the water fowl and chickens can have a nice safe place to go during bad weather. We are still looking for donations of mulch and bushes or trees, perennials, for outdoors full sun. Please share. Anything helps. ...
Big thanks to Joseph Whitley and the fire department of Kure Beach for going out and trying to help the Pelican today that was in the ocean at Kure Beach. The fire department took their boat out to search for him but unfortunately the bird could not be found. At some point, as he gets more exhausted and malnourished, he will beach himself, hopefully someone will call in time about him again.
We want everyone to know that if you even find a bird wrapped in line, its ok to cut the line off, but never let the bird go, or try to remove any hooks, birds are not ok just because they got loose from line, call a rescue so the bird can get an xray and an exam first before just letting him go. This Pelican today was the perfect example of why we always tell people not to release them after they got the line off the bird. Thank you! ...
Please share, there's a Pelican in the ocean waters in front of the Atlantic Towers, Kure beach that needs help. We cannot reach him because we don't have a boat. Unfortunately he was wrapped in line but people cut the line and let him go instead of calling for help or advice first. (something you should never do) so now the rescue is a lot harder because he's in the water. If anyone has a boat and can take one of our volunteers to reach him for capture please let us know. Thanks! ...
