Season’s Greetings

Peace and Compassion

As we gather with loved ones to celebrate this supposedly joyous season, let us reflect on the true spirit of Christmas as a time of peace, goodwill and compassion.

In a world marked by conflict, let this Christmas be a beacon of hope, inspiring us to condemn the scourge of war and violence that plagues our global community. May we, in the spirit of the season, strive for understanding, empathy and unity.

Let us extend our compassion not only to our fellow human beings but also to the countless sentient species that share this planet with us. All beings, regardless of their species, have intrinsic worth and deserve to be treated ethically.

May our hearts be open to the interconnectedness of all life, fostering a sense of stewardship and responsibility for the well-being of all sentient beings and for the fragile home we share – planet Earth.

Season’s Greetings

We wish all our followers and supporters a happy festive season and a Happy New Year 2023. Thank you so much for your continued support.

It has been another busy year here for us at the Corvid Isle Sanctuary. We have redecorated and upgraded parts of the living quarters of our resident birds and finished the outdoor extension of our pigeon loft. The annual winter preparation of our outdoor aviaries has been finished well in time before the winter started and the first snow came.

Sadly we also had to say good bye to some of our longterm residents, who passed away this year. Our hearts and thoughts go out to rooks Plato and Savannah, carrion crows Alwin and Will as well as to jackdaw Anselm. We were blessed and privileged to have them in our lives and it will take us a very long time to get over losing them.

Season's greetings

Some Thoughts About Christmas

Podcast – Some Thoughts About Christmas

Christmas is supposed to be a special time of kindness, compassion and gratitude. Christmas gives people the opportunity to reaffirm shared values and to strengthen social bonds. It is a time where people share feelings of excitement and are unified in the experience of participating in a ritual together. It makes people feel like they are part of a collective, whether that be with kin or chosen family. And this is, as humans are social beings, one of our fundamental human needs.
