Funds are used to continue the research on Common Swift rehabilitation, in addition providing support to a rehabilitation centre and volunteers which may not be able to cope with the rehabilitation of acute cases or the use of a pure insect diet.

An insect based diet showed a radical change in hand-rearing and Common Swift rehabilitation but still, we encounter many foundlings whose recovery can be very difficult:
 


   1-Chicks showing anorexia, vomiting with a need to be continuously force fed.

   2-Cases of swifts with feather problems.

   3-Fledlings arriving in poor condition almost at the time when they are ready to leave the nest.
 


Even when using a good diet, the recovery success of these severe cases is low. Many die on the first or second day of arrival at the center, others achieve below optimal weights for release with a strong risk to survival and many others need to be sacrificed because their feather problems cannot be treated.

The research project investigates methods for the rehabilitation of these severe cases and contribute to the creation of a hand-rearing protocol that can be widely used by wildlife rehabilitation centres.
