Why Become a Rescuer?

Preserving and protecting species isn't just for zoologists or scientists—every single one of us can join the mission and become a conservationist! Whether you’re funding a rescue or supporting an injured bird on its full journey from intake to release, The Rescuer's Giving Club gives exciting ways to make a real difference in the lives of these animals and their habitats.

We Need Your Help!

Our hospital cares for a growing number of sick and injured birds each year. If you are passionate about nature but aren't sure how to get involved, the World Bird Sanctuary provides numerous opportunities for you to help our feathered friends. Together, we can make a meaningful impact!
