The mission of Destined to Fly is to help wild native baby birds, with the goal that they will survive in the wild.
Destined to Fly is in Harrowsmith, On. located on a mixed terrain, 80 acre retired farm. It is the perfect place to release birds and also is a sanctuary for many native birds including Species at Risk like Eastern Measowlarks, Bobolinks and Barn Swallows

-re-nesting if possible
-how to rescue a baby bird
-Only when necessary, do we foster rescued baby birds.
We provide rescued baby birds with the proper shelter, nutrition, introduction to natural food. We provide them with a safe place outside to “learn” how to fly and forage for food prior to release to the wild.
Wildlife rehabilitation is not enough! Destined to Fly is also an 80 acre mixed terrain sanctuary. Birds need somewhere safe to live and thrive.
