TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A local wildlife sanctuary needs your help with taking care of over 40 different species.

The Avian Biodiversity Center opened its doors earlier this year. Volunteers at the center rescue and rehabilitate animals throughout the region.

The center is now in need of more space to help take in more animals.

In order to move, volunteers are calling on sponsors in the community to come along side the rescue and help with moving costs.

"We need it pretty badly. We can't keep up with the amount of not just rescues but also zoos and other private facilities that work with us for a breeding program and holding rare and endangered species," said Ryan Reines, Executive Director at Avian Biodiversity Center. "Again we are completely funded off of the general public, but we can not keep up with the number of animals coming in and the expansion."

Donating will go towards giving the animals food, medical help and housing. To get involved, you can go to their website.
