Birds Of Prey Centre Big Winner In On-Line Contest

 
 
COALDALE:   The Birds of Prey Centre in moving forward with much needed up-grades thanks to help from just over 25,500 on-line voters. 

The Centre got a financial windfall in the Jamieson Vitamins National $100-thousand "Call For The Wild" competition. People across Canada cast votes for their favorite centre or project.  Voting closed Sunday night and of the roughly 48,000 votes, a quarter were registered for the Birds of Prey Centre.

Birds of Prey Director Colin Weir says, "Since we got 25-per cent of the vote, we will be receiving from Jamieson $25,000 and what we're going to do with the funding is renovate and build some new aviaries for our birds and, hopefully, get some new audio-visual equipment  so we can share some of our stories with school children".  Construction is expected to begin this fall.

Weir is overwhelmed by the on-line support and sends a huge "Thank You" to all those who voted for Birds Of Prey in the contest.   He notes, "Most of our support came from right here in southern Alberta and Calgary but, we've also got quite a few supporters who have visited us over the years from other parts of Canada and North America, and they were voting for us daily as well".

The Birds of Prey Centre is a non-profit with no operating subsidies and Weir commented that, "The reason this place is so great is because of all the wonderful people in Southern Alberta".
