So many mouths to feed: Adopt a duckling

With Mother’s Day just around the corner (Sunday, May 10th) you may be scratching your head wondering what gift to get dear old Mom. How about adopting a duckling? For $25 you’ll make mom proud. The adoption also includes a certificate suitable for framing.

For $75 you can also gift a clutch of ducklings.

The adoptions help us care for more hungry, orphaned ducklings at both of our California bird centers. So far this year we’ve received over 300 ducklings.

Click on the PayPal donation link to the far right >> or see our adoption page on the IBRRC website.

IBRRC is still treating 60 injured pelicans caught in fishing line in a standoff with local fishermen.
