In Greece, there were strong storms in July 2018, which had many young birds dropping out of their nests. On the ground and not yet able to fly, many fell victim to hunger, bad weather and predators. Whenever we hear about such cases, we work tirelessly to help the helpless.
EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE FOR WILD ANIMALS
A few examples
The little birds grow as their survival instincts do. You usually don't need much, just a little help through water, food and the time to grow!
Not only blackbirds and sparrows are affected but also rarer bird species like this hoopoe. In August, there were countless more emergencies in Greece, especially among young storks. They were either wounded or simply had no strength because they could not find water or food in the drought.Not only blackbirds and sparrows were affected.
A truck driver reports to us he saw this young stork, which we remove from the highway after we find it in a debilitating condition. The poor fellow has been staying there for two days with no help.
Although it is in an unnatural environment, it accepts food and water with gratitude. He is nursed and released back into freedom after a few days.
This stork, on the other hand, needed care for longer. It had a broken left wing and we needed to be patient.
He likes shredded sardines and has had a nice time, until he is successfully released back into the wild after his recovery.
