FORT MYERS, Fla. - The Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium is raising money for a new aviary. The current one was built in the 1980s and is home to roughly 20 birds of prey with permanent injuries that prevent them from being released into the wild.
Feathered tenants include bald eagles, hawks, owls and vultures.
Calusa's fundraising goal is $80,000, and the center plans to use the money to update the bird enclosure, the boardwalk around it, and expand it for more birds.
The fundraising deadline is the end of this year.
You can donate online, or in person at the nature center, which is located at 3450 Ortiz Avenue, Fort Myers.
