Supporting Bournemouth’s Aviary

The rescue aviary in Bournemouth's Lower Gardens is a sanctuary for almost 200 homeless tropical birds, all looked after by wonderful volunteers. Please help us raise the funds needed to continue caring for these wonderful birds...

A sanctuary for 200 homeless tropical birds

Thanks to the support of local residents, visitors to our area, local businesses and from BCP Council, a new rescue aviary in Bournemouth Gardens was built in early 2022 and officially opened in May.

A much-loved attraction, it is run by volunteers and funded entirely by donations. The new aviary provides more flight space for the birds and allows visitors a 360-degree viewing experience. It has been built sustainably and to higher welfare standards.

Please continue to support this project; help us raise the money needed for the ongoing cost of bird food, water, heating and cleaning materials needed by the volunteers each and every day. Here are some ideas of how you can support us…
