Mission: Wild B.I.R.D., formally established in 2000, began as a coalition of wildlife rehabilitators, bird enthusiasts, and concerned citizens. After successfully lobbying for Colorado legislation that allowed the opening of a formal rehabilitation shelter in 1999, Wild B.I.R.D. now successfully saves thousands of rescued birds by providing educational information to the public and through co-ordinating volunteer programmes that allow for the care and re-release of rescued birds.
Target demographics: wild birds
Direct beneficiaries per year: 3000 birds
Geographic areas served: Denver
Programs: intensive and comprehensive rehabilitation and care to sick, injured, or abandoned birds with a secondary objective to educate the public on the importance of wild bird welfare and conservation.
Wild bird rescue has been a literal lifesaver! After having my young cat kill a mother bird and finding eggs in her nest I called them and they took me through everything step by step. I was very upset and they comforted me that the eggs would be alright and the birds taken care of. They also told me some information about the bird, a finch, and we're extremely friendly and caring. I was happy to hear that they were able to save and release two of the babies. I am so grateful for this organization, as are others I know who have taken birds to them and always had a great outcome. This place is amazing, caring, and smart!
