Refúgio helps sick seagulls

Dear Editor,

With the bad weather, especially in the winter, lots of seagulls are getting into difficulties and ending up washed up unable to move on the beaches.

From talking to people, it seems everyone just leaves them because they don’t know what to do with them. There’s a great place, RIAS in Olhão, but it’s a long way to travel for most people to take a seagull!

We’ve been helping quite a few now and going on to release them back. We would like to inform your readers that if they do find sick seagulls, we would take them in here at the Refúgio dos Burros. It seems sad to leave them to die when it’s actually quite easy to get them back to health again.
