It’s no secret: International Bird Rescue has the best volunteer corps imaginable. Wildlife lovers from all walks of life help us to fulfill the Every Bird Matters mission, from washing dishes and cleaning cages to hands-on work with myriad species of birds in care.
So what’s it like to volunteer? We asked Janelle, a physical therapist and volunteer at International Bird Rescue’s Los Angeles center since 2009. Video by Bill Steinkamp.
In order to volunteer, you must:
• Be at least 18 years old
• Have a sincere desire to help wildlife
• Commit to at least a four-hour shift a week
• Be dependable, responsible and willing to take direction
See you at the volunteer orientation!
