Taking Action Every Day
International Bird Rescue’s wildlife clinics are open year-round to provide critical care to seabirds beyond treating oiled wildlife. Each year our rehabilitation teams admit 3,500-5,000 birds between our two California clinic locations. These patients were brought to us by the general public and affiliated wildlife groups. Our focus has been to act toward balance with the natural world by rescuing waterbirds in crisis – since 1971 we’ve admitted over 150,000 birds and the count continues

As a voice for birds in the times they need help the most, we are pleased to give Terry Fontenrose the Alice Berkner Award, the highest honor earned by an esteemed volunteer.
Sign me up to attend! As a token of our appreciation for your incredible International Bird Rescue support, we’re rolling out the red carpet with exclusive prizes at our Saturday, November 18 Taking Flight Fall
