Rooster / donations
The center will accept donations of live roosters. The roosters are humanly euthanized by CO2 before being frozen and fed to the Raptors.
The benefits of this are two-fold:
- The raptors are provided with a natural food source as well as the added benefit of behavioral enrichment
- The behavior of dumping unwanted Roosters into the wild, which is illegal, can be stopped. The dumping of birds creates ‘Hot Spots’ that threaten the natural ecosystem in those areas and also endanger the roosters’ wellbeing.
Food donations are also accepted of Turkey wings, Chickens, fish, wallabies and possums (fresh road kill), contact Craig in advance. Mice/rat breeders are also encouraged to get in touch to help feed the hungry residents.
