Watch the video: The "Every Bird Matters" Mission
For 45 years, International Bird Rescue ("Bird Rescue") has been
a global leader in responding to man-made disasters affecting
wildlife, such as oil spills and marine debris. In addition to a
fully-equipped emergency response center in Alaska, Bird Rescue
runs two world-class wildlife centers in California which care for
more than 5,000 animals each year, including pelicans, herons,
shorebirds, and other aquatic species. This is made possible by
over 60,000 volunteer hours per year kindly provided by a diverse
group of retirees, nurses, veterinary students, and others. To
date, our response teams have led rescue efforts in more than 200
spills across six continents.
Bird Rescue is a proud partner in the State of California's Oiled Wildlife Care Network (OWCN), which is hosted at the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California at Davis, as well as the Global Oiled Wildlife Response System (GOWRS), a consortium of leading experts trying to solve the challenges of oiled wildlife outside of currently covered geographies.
