All year round we receive calls from across the city for birds that are stuck in Manja.
They get stuck on trees, poles, towers.. you name it.
These birds are usually stuck for long hours or even days before they are noticed by passersby.
As soon as we receive a call, our team scrambles together the equipment which usually consists of a telescopic pole, basic first aid, crates for carrying the bird in case it needs to be brought back to the RESQ Wildlife Unit and gloves for proper handling of birds.
After the bird is brought down, we conduct a basic on-site assessment of the condition the bird is in. If there is not a lot of damage to the wings and flying feathers then they are released immediately.
The birds are often dehydrated from hanging off of one wing and constantly trying to fly away. Some of them injure their wings irreparably, others sustain fractures and some are heavily bruised. These birds are brought in to the RESQ Wildlife unit for further treatment. Once the bird is on it's way to the RESQ Wildlife Unit, the Vets are notified of the birds status and they are ready to immediately tend to their injuries or put them on an IV drip in case it is dehydrated.
We try our best to keep these birds flying by providing whatever treatment is needed for their recovery and releasing them back once they are fit to fly.
We would be elated if you would like to support our endeavour of helping the birds that we share our skies with.
Every little bit you contribute matters towards a larger cause.
