International Bird Rescue requests interns interested in a rigorous, hands-on learning program that immerses them in every aspect of the operations of an aquatic bird hospital. From administering medications and collecting blood samples to cleaning cages, interns will learn about the species we care for and how to care for them.

Do you love helping wildlife? Then come be a part of our dedicated team and learn how you can help. International Bird Rescue is a non-profit wildlife hospital for injured and orphaned aquatic birds. Volunteers are needed to help in our wildlife hospital, transportation of wildlife, and facilities support. International Bird Rescue (Bird Rescue) has been saving seabirds and other aquatic birds around the world since 1971. As well as operating two year-round aquatic bird rescue centers in California, which care for over 5,000 birds every year, Bird Rescue's team of specialists has led oiled bird rescue efforts in over 200 oil spills in more than a dozen countries.

Description

About International Bird Rescue - www.birdrescue.org

In 1971 after 800,000 gallons of crude oil spilled into the bay, concerned individuals led by a registered nurse named Alice Berkner jumped into action, bringing International Bird Rescue to life. We have always had to pave a road where there is none. Staff and volunteers work with tenacity alongside clients, partners, and the public to find solutions. Today, we research best practices at our crisis response hospitals in California and Alaska and share them worldwide.
