Ever Consider Adopting?
You can adopt (sponsor) one of our special birds, and help subsidize the cost of feeding, medical treatment, aviary construction and daily care. In return, we’ll send you an adoption certificate, a photograph and biography of your bird. The cost is $100 per bird. To adopt your bird, please complete and mail us this Adoption Formalong with your check.
This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know these special ambassadors and to help Wind Over Wings continue our work in environmental education and rehabilitation. Wind Over Wings holds special permits from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Maine’s Department of Inland Fisheries, which allow us to have these birds for educational programs. So, by adopting a bird, it will not be showing up on your doorstep looking for a room with a view. The bird will remain at Wind Over Wings.
Sponsoring a bird makes a memorable gift to an adult or child! Schools and classrooms adopt birds of their choice. Students do amazing things! Many students have raised money to adopt a bird with Wind Over Wings. The Old Saybrook Middle School 5th graders designed environmental cards, which they sold on behalf of Wind Over Wings. An art class in Torrington made jewelry which was sold to raise the money for the adoption. Lyme Consolidated students recycled cans and did chores. At the Greenwich Country Day School, each class in the lower school adopted a bird. They did chores, had lemonade stands, and washed cars. Amazing! They raised far more than the $100 per bird adoption fee. The additional money enabled us to complete special projects in the birds’ aviaries. We built a ramp for Faith to go into her shed, and made food boxes for the raptors. Give kids a chance and watch what they can do!
