More Funding for Botanic Gardens Aviaries, Southport.
We the undersigned petition the council to Fund a well needed refurb for all animal enclosures / aviaries to stop rats attacking animals and birds forcing a shut down. Fund qualified animal care assistants so they have enough resources for adequate care and veterinary treatment.
Botanic Gardens aviary is historical and is very dear to the community. There have been rumours of the closure of the aviaries / animal enclosures for over a year. Local breeders have donated many birds to the aviaries for the enjoyment of the public. The staff employed by Sefton Council have always done great work. However, now there is a horrendous rat problem causing injury and distress to the animals this is due to the lack of funding for a much needed refurbishment from Sefton Council. The birds are being sold off for safety. The aviaries are extremely out dated and have deteriorated over time allowing rats to get into the enclosures. The Chipmunks are in URGENT NEED of veterinary treetment for thier wounds. Sefton Council are not doing anything and have left the issue to the volunteers "Friends of Botanic Gardens " to sort it out. They are seeking help from sanctuaries and breeders to do the work for free. This will not do, Southport needs funds aswell as Liverpool.
