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.
With your gift, we'll send you an official adoption certificate. You can email it, print it out and send to a loved one, or we can create a personalized certificate in full color and mail wherever you'd like us to send it.
Also, we can send a PDF adoption certificate, personalized with your gift recipient's name - looks great on the iPhone, iPad and other personal devices!
International Bird Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Your gift is tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
Over the years, International Bird Rescue has treated thousands of Pelicans. A single Brown Pelican can consume about 6 pounds of fish a day - half its bodyweight - and many are in care for 3-5 weeks at a time. It can cost more than $500 for every one of these majestic creatures we save.
Every spring and summer our centers are filled with aquatic birds including egrets and herons. With donor help, we successfully raise and release over 500 egrets and herons a year.
Every spring and summer our centers are filled with orphaned ducklings. Your adoption of a clutch of ducklings helps us successfully raise and release over 1,000 ducklings a year.
Loons are diving birds that live in lakes and oceans around the world. They are especially sensitive to oil spills since loons dive rather than fly when they encounter oil slicks.
These elegant, black-and-white birds breed in lakes and ponds across the American West and winter along the Pacific Coast. We treat hundreds of Western and Clark's Grebes each year.
Murres spend most of the non-breeding season at sea, diving for food. Major oil spills along central California coast have had significant impact on their populations.
Orphaned ducklings need a helping hand. With your support, we successfully raise and release over 1,000 ducklings a year.
