Wildlife Heroes Grant Funds Custom Built Recovery Avery For Apex Predators

Birds of prey injured and treated on the Northern Rivers will have a custom-built aviary to recover before they are released back into nature.

Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital received a grant of $50,000 from the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife to build the structure and save wildlife.

Founder vet Stephen Van Mill said the free-flight aviary will be located on land owned by the proprietors of Sea Peace, a subtropical forest on 368 acres of regenerated land in Ewingsdale.

“The facility will treat birds of prey, raptors – wedge-tailed eagles, hawks, owls and falcons,” he said.
