Why Do We Care About Wild Birds

Because birds are nature’s voice and they need a helping hand

With your support we offer that helping hand with knowledge, skill and compassion.

Every year, thousands of concerned citizens like you contact our team of wildlife biologists, students and volunteers for helpful advice and compassionate, professional bird care. But we all know that 2020 is proving to be a year like no other. The pandemic has turned our world upside down. For Le Nichoir, this has meant the suspension of our environmental education programs and the cancellation of essential fundraising events. Social distancing rules closed our conservation centre to the public and greatly reduced our ability to benefit from the extraordinary group of volunteers that has helped us through our peak summer season for the past 24 years.

In spite of all that, we are proud to report that 2020 was another record year for our bird care services, with more than 2,600 bird admissions. Each and every one of those birds tells a story about the harsh realities facing wild birds.

With your support, we will be able to continue lending a helping hand to distressed birds, and be equipped to make our unique education programs available to even more children – sound investments for the future of wild birds and, by extension, the health of our struggling environment.

You are an important part of Le Nichoir’s family of friends and supporters making wild bird conservation a reality. Thank you for your confidence in Le Nichoir and for considering a gift during this year’s campaign.

Thank you,

Susan, Jo-Annie, and Weiyi
