We hope to raise $40,000 to support waterbird rescue and rehabilitation at our two California wildlife hospitals.
This is our story, who we are, what we do, and why we do it.
Taking Action Every Day
International Bird Rescue’s wildlife clinics are open year-round to provide critical care to seabirds beyond treating oiled wildlife. In 2019 alone, rehabilitation teams admitted over 3,500 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 125,000 birds and the count continues.

After 103 days in care, we are ecstatic to report that we released a very special patient this past week.
A Green-winged Teal is alive and in care because of the heroic efforts of two family members in Mendocino County.
