Sure has taken its sponsorships to the skies by becoming the Telecommunications Partner for conservation charity Manx BirdLife. We have signed on to the sponsorship for a period of three years. Support includes the provision of 4G services for the charity’s Point of Ayre and ‘Owl Cam’ observation cameras, one of which is powered by solar technology. Support is also provided to its office administration with broadband and telephony services.

Manx BirdLife works to protect the island’s wild birds and the habitats on which they depend. Since its establishment in 1997, the charity has monitored the abundance and diversity of the island’s wild birds and uses this data to inform conservation action that creates a better future for birds and people.

The sponsorship sees Sure provide the charity with a 4G router and directional aerial at Point of Ayre, which will allow islanders to watch the wildlife there online at any time. This comes in addition to our provision of a 4G router for Manx BirdLife’s ‘Barn Owl webcam’. This beloved project allows islanders to watch a local barn owl via a live, high-level quality stream. As part of the sponsorship, we also support the charity’s office administration through the provision of broadband and telephony services. As the sole Telecommunications Partner, Sure has committed to continuing all these activities for the next three years.

Manx BirdLife Managing Director Neil Morris said: “Sure’s generous sponsorship package continues to improve our work. The essential 4G support to our observation cameras at Point of Ayre and for the barn owls, will give everyone a wonderful armchair view of some of our island’s amazing birds and other wildlife. We are hugely grateful for the company’s support”.

Sure Isle of Man CEO Mike Phillips added: “Being aware of our impact on the environment is a cornerstone of Sure’s values. That’s why we are thrilled to support Manx BirdLife and aid the organisation’s day-to-day operations as well as supporting its observation cameras with powerful 4G connection speeds. We are delighted to give islanders a look at some of the most beautiful birds the Isle of Man has to offer and engage the community with the charity’s great work”.
