Bird Rescue Legacy Society

Since our founding in 1971, International Bird Rescue and our team of dedicated and caring volunteers, staff and supporters have inspired people to act towards balance with the natural world by rescuing waterbirds in crisis. We share our best practices and treat an average of 5,000 birds a year at our crisis response hospitals in California and Alaska. We dream of a world in which every person, every day, takes action to protect the natural home of wildlife and ourselves. This is our legacy.

The Bird Rescue Legacy Society honors those who have made a commitment to ensuring Bird Rescue’s future for generations to come by remembering the organization in their estate plans. We are truly honored to make our legacy a part of yours.
