In 1971, an oil spill in the San Francisco Bay brought together a group of citizens who saw the need for a coordinated and professional response to oiled wildlife. This moment marked the birth of International Bird Rescue, with its first wildlife rescue center in Berkeley’s Aquatic Park.
Working on behalf of aquatic birds around the globe, International Bird Rescue’s team of specialists has led oiled bird rescue efforts at over 200 oil spills in more than a dozen countries. The non-profit pairs rescue with year-round rehabilitation at two California aquatic bird rescue centers, caring for 5,000 avian patients each year.
With the unyielding conviction that every bird matters, International Bird Rescue has saved hundreds of thousands of birds.
