Target demographics: injured, ill and orphaned wildlife

Direct beneficiaries per year: over 2000 wild animals and educated over 1000 students about New York City's wildlife.

Geographic areas served: New York City

Programs: medical care and rehabilitation to native and passing migrant wildlife so that they can be released back into the wild. We are the only wildlife rehabilitation and education center in New York City.

Each year the Wild Bird Fund rehabilitates over 2,000 sick, injured or orphaned wildlife and releases them back to the wilds of New York City. Rehabilitation includes radiographs, diagnostic testing, surgery, medication, bandaging, splinting, physical therapy, feeding and sheltering. All native and migratory birds are treated, from the house sparrow to rarities such as Virginia rails and great-horned owls

Supporting the Wild Bird Fund not only heals injured birds an animals, but positively affects the people who try to help them, and shows a desire to take responsibility for the impact that we have had on the environment of our precious wildlife.
