In 1971, an oil spill in the San Francisco Bay brought together a group of citizens who saw the need for a coordinated and professional response to oiled wildlife. This moment marked the birth of International Bird Rescue, with its first wildlife rescue center in Berkeley’s Aquatic Park.
Working on behalf of aquatic birds around the globe, International Bird Rescue’s team of specialists has led oiled bird rescue efforts at over 200 oil spills in more than a dozen countries. The non-profit pairs rescue with year-round rehabilitation at two California aquatic bird rescue centers, caring for 5,000 avian patients each year.

ABOUT BIRD RESCUE
In addition to responding to oil spills around the world, International Bird Rescue staff work to care for birds impacted by lesser known threats like natural oil seeps under the ocean, algal blooms, marine debris, and extreme weather. We use this blog to share stories from the field and from the two California-based bird rescue centers we manage. We hope you enjoy this window into our world—we are truly passionate about caring for birds, and know that our community shares this passion. We could not do this important work without your ongoing support!
