FEBS New Website Launched!

We are pleased to announce that our new and refreshed website is live! It has been crafted to reflect what our followers and supporters told us would make a better experience—including a responsive technology underpinning for site access from a desktop, tablet or smartphone.

We also improved the structure of our content so you can find information quickly and easily.

Our primary goal with the new site is to provide our visitors an easier way to learn about our mission and explore our programs.

Some of the new features you will enjoy include:

  • A Sanctuary Life Reimagined™ page that articulates how we re-IMAGINE the programs and facilities that we are adding to our new Hudson sanctuary grounds.
  • The Friends of FEBS program, which is a new monthly giving program with 100% of every dollar going directly towards sponsored parrots’ food, health care, treats and caregiver snuggle time.
  • Integrated social media buttons for Facebook and Twitter that allow you to follow and like FEBS—and post and tweet about FEBS in your own social media accounts.
  • New pictures and media in our FEBS Gallery, including the exciting progress on our Hudson sanctuary.
  • Online contact and volunteer application forms.
  • Downloadable PDF’s of key information, including bird placement, tours and planned giving programs.
  • Our new, online FEBS Store—get your FEBS t-shirt today 😉

 

PLEASE NOTE that we are now using a “.org” domain as we are a fully qualified 501(c)(3) non-profit (charitable organization.) Our old website (flabirdsanctuary.com) will no longer function. If you have bookmarked that site, you will automatically be redirected to our new site.

We would like to thank our board, staff and media team volunteers who donated their time and energy to make this site what it is.

We hope you like the changes, and if you have any feedback, please let us know on Facebook or Twitter.

FEBS Arbor/Shade System

Happy Friday everyone. Today’s post is  about our new arbor/shade system being installed by The Phoenix Solution.

Due to the extreme heat here in Florida, we knew that we needed a covered walkway not only for visitors but our staff and volunteers as well. We are very pleased with this design and hope many of you come visit us this summer! Of course we made sure the birdies had shade and misters first! Looking forward to a nice summer!

Welcome, Sinbad & Shalimar!

Welcome, Sinbad & Shalimar!

These 2 beautiful Yellow Collared Macaws just arrived yesterday. Their owners drove them all the way from Texas to spend the rest of their life here at FEBS! They can’t wait for them to join the flock of mini macaws!

FEBS’ Enrichment and Training Room

We would like to share our enrichment and behavior training room.  Our onsite Avian Behaviorist, Chris and his helper, George, are working with a couple of FEBS birds.  We are very grateful for their help and really can’t wait to give them a really efficient enrichment room in our new building.  Look for the fundraising program soon for our dream building!  We can’t wait to take so many birds that came to us with anger issues and help them calm down and “just be a bird!!!”

FEBS’ Animal Behaviorist At Work

Chris Armstrong, our Animal Behaviorist at FEBS, worked with Mandy on a no force nail trim Friday.  Mandy’s first time nail trim in the training room at FEBS went very well. So proud of her.  He made it a fun experience for Mandy.  He works with the birds by identifying their reinforcer and slowly acclimating them to the situation and getting them to accept it without feeling forced or stressed out.  This is such important work and the birds at FEBS appreciate it very much.  What a great asset we have in Chris at FEBS.  Thank you for all that you do!!!
