Condor Ferries donate life saving Brinsea incubators to GSPCA
The GSPCA and Condor Ferries have teamed up so Guernsey’s local charity can continue to provide lifesaving care for young, sick or injured birds and mammals that are brought into the shelter each year.
Through its Community Fund, Condor has purchased three specialist Brinsea TLC incubators which will be used at the Animal Shelter for keeping new born chicks in a clean, temperature-controlled environment to aid their development. The equipment also doubles as intensive care units, providing vital support for orphaned, injured or weak animals.

Steve Byrne, the GSPCA Manager and the team were extremely pleased with the new arrivals.
Steve said, ‘Every day sick and injured animals are rescued and brought into the GSPCA. Many of these have life threatening ailments and we also help huge numbers of baby animals that require intensive care units to help save their lives and keep them warm if they are orphaned young. These new intensive care units really give them the best chance to recover and thrive. We are so grateful to Condor for the new intensive care units so we can carry on our important work in our community. With over 100 hedgehogs, 2 seal pups, dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, fish, reptiles and many birds we help over 3000 animals through the doors every year. We couldn’t do so much without your support and again a huge thanks to Condor from all of the GSPCA.’
Greg Yeoman, Condor’s Commercial Director, commented, ‘We transport many types of animals on our sailings each year so understand the importance of supporting organisations such as the GSPCA for the work they do in the Island. We are therefore happy to help Steve and the team at this amazing charity.’
Now whilst I’m not a big fan of corporate advertising or product placement I have to give credit where credit is due. Yesterday Tom broke the element in my Hatchmaker with five day old chicks in it....
