BIRD CONSERVATION GROUP ALL OF A TWITTER AFTER SOUTH HOOK SUPPORT

One of Pembrokeshire’s unsung conservation groups is flying high after receiving its biggest support donation yet of £1,000 from the South Hook Community Investment Programme. 

The Society for Conservation of Aviculture (SCA) was set up in 1993 to help protect threatened and endangered species of kept birds and is run by keen volunteers who give their time to ensuring their welfare while promoting responsible care and ownership.  They also provide a valuable service which re-homes rescued and neglected birds by matching them with people who are able to look after them.  Part of the £1,000 donation from South Hook will go towards two new large cages while the SCA are also looking at extending the SCA aviary at Folly Farm so that more rescued birds can be housed for visitors to enjoy.

Mohammed Al-Naimi, Director & General Manager of South Hook, spent an interesting morning meeting Pembrokeshire’s key fundraisers Diana Taylor and Anne Burdett and learning more about the Society.  He was also introduced to a few of the lively local residents including a colourful pair of Amazon parrots called Chaz and Jay and Scooby the African Grey who was very keen to talk.

On presenting a cheque for £1,000 he commented:

 “I’ve had a great morning understanding both how much joy these birds provide people and how important it is to protect them.  I am proud that South Hook has supported this Society and I know the investment we have given will help this Society to continue in its good work in our County.  Well done to both Diana and Anne and all the hard work done by all the volunteers.”

The SCA is also working hard to raise awareness of their mission and is looking to increase their membership particularly in identifying and helping more people to re-house the birds.

"We are delighted that South Hook have chosen to support the SCA and help raise awareness of the charity. Many bird keepers in Pembrokeshire have not  known where to turn to for help and advice, This welcome donation and publicity will increase our membership and enable us to provide more help and information. Our website can be found at www.thesca.org.uk  On behalf all  local birds’ ‘thank you’ South Hook." 

South Hook’s Community Investment Programme focuses upon initiatives in the areas of Education, health and the environment.  Since its start the Investment Programme has seen schools, colleges, voluntary organisations, charities and art groups receive financial support in excess of £500,000.
