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.
Meet Glen and his handsome Green Wing Macaw Biggie. Glen’s passion for birds brought him to FEBS. He is a licensed self-employed electrician that now volunteers his time to help FEBS run electric to the aviaries and other electrical needs. We really appreciate people like this in our community for lending their expertise to us! Thank you from all the birdies!
This week we want to give a special thanks to a volunteer named Kenneth Kelly. He worked his entire vacation week from 12/11-12/16 at FEBS! Ken is from New York and is a retired Navy man who worked on submarines. He has a Blue and Gold Macaw, a Green Wing Macaw, and an Umbrella Cockatoo at home. He plans to move to Florida soon (we can’t wait) :). We can’t say thank you enough to all he and the many volunteers have done. You all make such a huge difference every day. When asked what Ken thought of what we were doing at FEBS he said “It’s unique… we are making it happen.. it can be done”. Thank you for all of your hard work.
