Two donation tins have been stolen from the Bloedel Conservatory in Vancouver's Queen Elizabeth Park.
President of Friends of Bloedel Vicky Earle estimates several hundred dollars were in the tins when they were swiped from the front counter.
"The tether that was used to secure both tins had been cut cleanly, like with a knife, so they just noticed that they were missing Friday afternoon."
Earle says one of the tins is used for emergency bird care costs or educational materials for the Conservatory.
The other was for Greyhaven Exotic Bird Sanctuary.
She says the funds are crucial especially during this time of year when they see an increase in visitors to Bloedel.
