Become a Pelican Partner

Brown-Pelican-Flying-Free

It's an unforgettable experience: In our Pelican Partner program, you and your family will have the chance to tour either our Los Angeles or San Francisco Bay centers, where you'll meet your pelican as it gets ready for its release. See your pelican get its final medical exam and numbered leg band. Then travel with our team to the release site nearby, where you'll open the door to your pelican's cage. You'll watch as this amazing animal takes its first steps back into the wild and soars away. Sign up and become a Pelican Partner today!

$1,000 - Pelican Partner

Donors of $1,000 will have the chance to tour one of our California centers and help to release one of our Pelican patients back into the wild. Bird Rescue Partners make an especially heroic impact on International Bird Rescue's ability to save seabirds and other aquatic birds every day of the year. In addition to knowing that their gift will make twice the difference for the birds in our care, Bird Rescue Partners will have the chance to tour one of our California centers and help to release a pelican back into the wild. This experience offers supporters a special opportunity to see a pelican getting its final medical exam and numbered leg band, and the once-in-a-lifetime honor of opening the cage at the release site as your partner pelican takes its first steps into the open and soars away.

$2,500 - Second Chances Circle

Members of International Bird Rescue's Second Chances Circle are truly guardians of all birds in need. In addition to knowing that they are making a significant and life-saving gift, donors of $2,500 will have the chance to tour one of our California centers and help to release a flock of patients back into the wild! This experience offers supporters a special opportunity to see birds getting their final medical exam and numbered leg bands, and the once-in-a-lifetime honor of opening the cages at the release site as your released birds take their first steps into the open and soar away!

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.
