Crush tin cans before recycling

We see so many animals, each year, that have become trapped in litter, such as tin cans. This can cause severe injuries and even death in some cases. Crush that tin can and dispose of it properly, to help your local wildlife!

Visit the link below to see a previous rescue where a fox cub has become trapped inside a tin can!

Help prevent birds from flying in to your windows

Birds’ eyes are on the sides of their heads, which is extremely useful in spotting predators or potential mates. However, this makes it rather hard for them to focus on the scene directly in front of them. This, along with the reflective glass, makes it extremely easy for them to mistake windows for the sky.

By getting creative with materials you have around the house, you can make your own decorations to place on the windows, to break up any reflections.

Here’s just one idea for creating window stickers:

  • Add a few drops of food colouring to a bottle of PVA glue and mix well.
  • Draw designs with the coloured glue on a clear plastic surface. You can use a folder or children’s table mat, but remember the colouring may bleed.
  • Lay the plastic on a flat surface and allow the glue to dry completely.
  • Once the glue is dry, you can peel it off the plastic and position it on your favourite window!

If you don’t have any glue, simply have the kids draw beautiful pictures on to a sheet of paper, cut them out and stick them to the window using tape!
