Adopt a Heron/Egret

$50 - Herons/Egrets

Every spring and summer, our wildlife care centers in California are filled with herons. With the help of people like you, we successfully raise and release over 500 egrets and herons a year, including the Great Blue Heron, Snowy Egret (right photo) and Black-crowned NIght-Herons.

Adoptions are symbolic and represent how your donation can help International Bird Rescue's work on behalf of aquatic birds worldwide. Your gift will be used where needed most to rescue and rehabilitate birds impacted by both natural and man-made threats, such as oil spills and algal blooms. Please note that International Bird Rescue is not able to direct gifts toward the care of individual patients or those from a specific event, such as an oil spill.

Your gift confirmation e-mail will contain a link through which you can download an adoption certificate to personalize as either a keepsake for yourself or as a gift to a loved one.
