Last January, a colla­bo­ra­tor of SOS Pri­ma­tes, María, carried 36.3 kg of work equip­ment dona­ted by the Bar­ce­lo­na Zoo to the Bird of Prey Reha­bi­li­ta­tion Cen­ter of the NGO Brin­zal in Madrid. This cen­ter has ope­ra­ted suc­cess­fully for 35 years and is the only one spe­cia­li­zing in this type of bird in Spain.

Brin­zal is a non-pro­fit orga­ni­za­tion dedi­ca­ted to pre­ser­ving, stud­ying, and reha­bi­li­ta­ting bio­di­ver­sity sin­ce 1986. It deve­lops work in the natu­ral envi­ron­ment and bio­di­ver­sity con­ser­va­tion through various lines, inclu­ding eco­lo­gi­cal res­to­ra­tion, envi­ron­men­tal edu­ca­tion, research, and envi­ron­men­tal con­sul­ting, all in colla­bo­ra­tion with public and pri­va­te entities.

As you know, SOS Pri­ma­tes mana­ges and sends the mate­rial dona­ted by the Bar­ce­lo­na Zoo to wild­li­fe reha­bi­li­ta­tion cen­ters. This is the first time we have deli­ve­red this mate­rial to a cen­ter that works with nati­ve fau­na of the Ibe­rian Peninsula.

We are very plea­sed that it can con­tri­bu­te to the incre­di­ble task of pro­tec­ting the envi­ron­ment and noc­tur­nal birds of prey, among other birds, which are so neces­sary for the balan­ce of nature.

In the pho­tos, you can see some of the tasks carried out at the cen­ter, as well as María deli­ve­ring the material.

Many thanks to all tho­se invol­ved (the Bar­ce­lo­na Zoo, Brin­zal, and espe­cially María) without for­get­ting the SOS Pri­ma­tes volun­teers who stri­ve every day to help not only pri­ma­tes but all ani­mals enti­rely altruistically.

If you tra­vel to any of the coun­tries whe­re the­re are pri­ma­te or other ani­mal cen­ters and you want to help, do not hesi­ta­te to con­tact us so that we can orga­ni­ze a ship­ment during your trip.
