You can help rescue birds who are stuck in a crisis.
Millions of birds die every year due to injury from fishing (hooks, nets, and lines) and urban wildlife conflicts such as human cruelty, illegal shootings, habitat disruption, starvation, pollution and climate change-induced hazards including algae bloom toxicity.
“Seabirds, which comprise more than 300 species worldwide, are declining faster than any other group of birds. Populations of oceanic seabirds are most threatened” (National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, 2018).
GreaterGood.org partners with International Bird Rescue to save helpless birds who are in a crisis. IBR operates two specialty veterinary hospitals and an emergency response center that rescues and rehabilitates native aquatic birds, and releases them back into the wild. This daily rescue and rehabilitation work is ongoing: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Birds successfully rehabilitated are given the chance to return to a normal life, including participating in normal species behavior, possibly one day producing and rearing their own offspring, and filling their critical role in the ecosystem.
You can help. Just $10 provides 1 day of care for 1 bird. We dream of a world in which every person, every day, takes action to protect the natural home of wildlife and ourselves, and you can be a part of making a difference.
International Bird Rescue mission is to inspire people to act toward balance with the natural world by rescuing waterbirds in crisis. We minimize and mitigate human impact on wildlife through four core programs: Wildlife Rehabilitation, Oil Spill Preparedness and Emergency Response, Research and Innovation, and Education and Training.
