【熱浪受不鳥】近200隻小海鷗受不了多倫多熱辣辣的天台跳樓獲救

1,374

多倫多熱浪逼人,受不了不只人類,小鳥一樣受不「鳥」。

上週為數近200隻可愛小海鷗在士嘉堡一幢兩層高的工業大廈天台誕生,天台因太陽直照地面變得極度高溫,小海鷗們受不了熱辣辣的地面紛紛從天台跳下,可是小海鷗們還未學曉飛行,許多從二樓跌下地下受傷。

多倫多野生中心 (The Toronto Wildlife Centre) 派員拯救,將每隻海鷗小寶寶帶回中心一一療傷。小海鷗主要是跌傷和腳部灼傷。後來中心職員在氣溫稍為下降後將海鷗送回天台,殊不知牠們還是再跳下來。

Over 190 baby ring-billed gulls saved!

Last Monday, rescue team’s Sarrah and Stacey led a group to gather over 170 baby ring-billed gulls who had jumped from a scalding hot roof. They recruited Sara (staff member and rescue volunteer), Amanda (intern) and Geneviève (volunteer) to lend a helping hand. After 3 hours of capturing each gull and placing them into boxes, it took 3 vehicles to transport them all to TWC. At the centre, the medical and rehabilitation teams pooled together and spent about 5 hours to ensure that each baby was assessed and given fluids – some were even treated for burns on their feet.The rescue team consulted rehabilitation centres in North America to discover that no known knowledge of this unique situation had happened before. But at their recommendation and in spite of the risk the babies might jump again, the rescue team decided they had to try to reunite the babies with their parents for their best chance of survival. Over two days, the team slowly and carefully tried reintroducing the babies back into the colony of thousands of gulls after the roof cooled. With the help of building employees Fred and Allison, the rescue team monitored the gulls multiple times a day. Sadly, many of the babies jumped again. Currently, there are over 90 baby gulls in care, and TWC’s rescue team is no longer taking the risk to return them back to the roof colony. As a charity run solely on donations, this puts a lot of strain on current resources and we desperately need help – many pounds of fresh/frozen wild-caught freshwater smelt, hundreds of chicken eggs, hard plastic kiddie pools and every spare dollar are needed to care for the babies and feed all those hungry mouths. If you’d like to help, please drop off donated items to TWC or make an online donation today!https://www.torontowildlifecentre.com/donate/one-time-gift/

結果野生中心的職員需要再度接走小鳥寶寶,現時仍有近90隻小海鷗在中心接受呵護。

由於The Toronto Wildlife Centre是非牟利機構,專門拯救及照顧受傷的動物,平常營運資金並不充裕。如果大家有意支持它們的工作,包括捐款或捐助食物予小海鷗或其他動物,可前往它們的中心,或網上捐款支持亦可。
