Sponsor a swan
Stuck for gifting ideas? Not sure what to buy for the person that has everything? Want a considered gift for the nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts?
Sponsoring a swan is a great gift whether it is for yourself or a for a loved one and is an important source of income for Swan Lifeline.
Your contribution helps towards the daily running costs of the centre at Cuckoo Weir Island and covers expenses such as food, rescue costs and veterinary bills.
We can house up to 180 swans and on average, we are called to rescue over 700 swans and admit over 300 for treatment in any given year. Your support will contribute to the costs involved during a swan's time with us.
It costs £25 to sponsor a swan and £35 to sponsor a cygnet annually.
If you choose to sponsor a cygnet, it is likely that it will arrive at Swan Lifeline from March onwards and be with us until it is ready to be safely released, which could be at any time from October to the following spring. We will tell you the cygnet’s name and give a brief account of why it was rescued by us and brought to Swan Lifeline for care.
