Watch the documentary ‘RELEASE OF WINGS’, dedicated in part to the work of our accredited partner, below.
János Déri and Marios Fournaris both have spent 25 years of their lives saving birds. Two ageing “medicine men” with strange pasts and attitudes who work in their own bird hospitals adamantly, 1800 kilometres from each other, leaning only on the goodwill and financial support of strangers. János is an acclaimed veterinarian at the Hungarian Hortobágy, while Marios taught himself the healing of birds on a small Greek island, Paros. They receive injured, electrocuted, illegally shot, sick birds daily. Their stories interweave.
