Layout and design is complete for the on site hurricane evacuation and multi purpose building. A special thanks goes out to Kathleen Foster, our graphic artist guru, for all of the hard work put into designing our new 4400 SF long awaited and much needed building. The matching funds of $10k has generously been met up to almost 50%. Way to go guys! This campaign will end April 30th. In order to reach our $10,000 match, we still need your contribution. Anyone giving over $100 or more between now and the end of the campaign will receive a free FEBS T-shirt. Please click HERE to donate or start your own fundraiser for this project.
A big thank you to Tony, Javier, and Team Taqueria del Sol for the very generous donation of their old patio weather wraps to our sanctuary. At 8 ft high and 65 ft long they fit perfectly around the space our sweet special needs birds are staying in until their flight is built. What an awesome way to help FEBS! Please head over to their Facebook link below and give a like and a thank you to this great group!

We would like to give a great big THANK YOU to Larry Falls and his company ASSOCIATED CONSTRUCTION PRODUCTS for donating 72 pallets of pavers that were taken up from some restaurants in Tampa. Larry and his men packed them up, shrink wrapped them and delivered them to the Hudson Sanctuary. We are so grateful for these pavers, they will be used to create walkways in front of aviaries for volunteers ease of feeding and for tour. What a wonderful way to start the new year!
Getting ready for Christmas at FEBS! Lots of toys for every-bird 🙂
