What We Do

There are a variety of ways our wildlife rehabilitators help wild birds.

Rescue & Rehabilitate

Our 501(c)(3) nonprofit rescues and rehabilitates orphaned, injured or displaced wild birds. We hold Category II state and federal bird permits and work with a veterinarian who specializes in birds.


We provide birds with medical care and sanctuary with the goal of returning them to the wild. If they cannot be returned to the wild, we try to find a permitted facility where they can spend the rest of their life.


We educate the public about wild birds and provide workshops and programs. We protect wild birds by disseminating about the importance of saving wild birds and conserving their habitat.
