Happy 2011 and thank you so much for your support in 2010!
Thanks to donors like you, International Bird Rescue Research Center raised enough funds in the last week of December to meet our $15,000 matching goal. We are thrilled with this news, as that translates into $30,000 to help treat the sick and injured birds arriving daily in our rescue centers.
We never know when the next wildlife emergency will strike, sending stricken birds to our doors, but thanks to the generosity of IBRRC donors like you, we can be prepared to care for them whenever they arrive.
In 2010, we treated nearly 5,000 birds in our two centers – everything from pelicans to tiny sandpipers to lesser-known fulmars. Last month we also cared for a tundra swan that was found cold and weak in a farmer’s field.
Thank you so much for helping make our work possible and best wishes for a peaceful and happy new year.
