Bird-res­cue twins to visit sanc­tu­ary

Isis Town and Country - - NEWS -

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.
