Mission: To mitigate the human impact on aquatic birds and other wildlife worldwide.

The Organization - www.bird-rescue.org

Founded in 1971, International Bird Rescue is an accomplished not-for-profit organization dedicated to mitigating human impact on sea and water birds, worldwide. Whether our patients are oiled (e.g., Deepwater Horizon spill in 2010), orphaned by human encroachment on habitat, injured from fishing line, or struck by a car, we're here to help! Our core work is the rescue and rehabilitation of oiled, sick, injured, and orphaned aquatic birds, supported by a corps of impassioned volunteers. We manage two year-round aquatic bird hospitals in California (near LA and SF Bay), as well as a wildlife response center in Alaska.
