We have a wonderful Bird Recovery Centre here in Whangarei run by a husband and wife. They need funds towards a new boat which is used, among other things, for rescuing and releasing sea birds. We read recently about the publication of a book of poems and drawings with a strong conservation message where all proceeds go to the Bird Recovery Centre.
Today we went in to town to buy a couple of copies, one for us and one for a friend's birthday. It was larger than I expected, 170 pages and I have only given it a quick glance but here are a couple of items.
