The Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society has received funding to build a new educational centre.

The $236,000 in funding is being provided by the Island Coastal Economic Trust.

Vice President Pearl McKenzie says education is a key component of the work at MARS.

She notes that most of the injured and sick wildlife they take in have had negative experiences with people and other animals.
