Bird-rescue twins to visit sanctuary
RENOWNED wildlife rescuer twins Paula and Bridgette Powers will visit Flying High Bird Sanctuary this Saturday.
For the past 12 years, Paula and Bridgette Powers, or the “Twinnies” as they are more commonly called, have provided a 24/7 rescue and rehabilitation service for seabirds, waterbirds and native birds and other Australian native animals.
Flying High Bird Sanctuary’s David Tocknell has invited the public to attend the family fun day.
“I’m hoping to have as many as possible. As it’s a family fun day, there will be raffles, prizes for the LARC tours in 1770, sausage sizzle and face painting,” Mr Tocknell said.
He said the idea was to educate the public about injured seabirds.
“What we want to do is make sure that people know that if they find any seabirds, bring them here to us and we can get them on to them to look after,” he said.
Talks will be held throughout the day, from 10am to 3pm, and sanctuary entry costs will be reduced.
