Here at SkyWatch Bird Rescue we serve any sort of wild bird in need of help. From orphaned and helpless baby birds to injured raptors to ailing seabirds, it is our mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and release any wild bird in need.

SkyWatch Bird Rescue is in need of volunteers age 17 & up. There are many ways to help rescue injured and orphaned birds, even if you prefer not to work hands-on with birds. SkyWatch is looking for folks to help with all sorts of tasks that are crucial to our mission: daily chores of feeding, cage cleaning, medicating etc, fundraising, hotline work, baby bird feeding and the capture & transport of injured birds. You can also work hands-on with the birds if you prefer, learning how to raise orphan baby birds for release back to the wild, assist with captures, or learning how to care for many different type of birds. Skywatch rescues birds like: Waterfowl, Aquatic/Wading birds, Songbirds, Shore birds, Raptors/& other birds of prey, and many more.

The more volunteers we have, the more SkyWatch can grow and serve the injured and ailing wild birds in need of help. So many birds are injured every day and animal control cannot take in wildlife. There is no paid organization or funded service that helps injured wild birds in Wilmington, so it's up to the public to help the birds by getting involved with a legally licensed rehabilitation facility to rescue birds on a non-profit group based effort. There are so many different ways to help. Get involved and find out how many easy ways you can make a difference. You can help as much or as little as you like, working hands-on with the birds or helping them right from home. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have - we look forward to hearing from you! Visit our website and fill out a volunteer form. Join the flock! www.,skywatchbirdrescue.org or email info@skywatchbirdrescue.org

Mission Statement

SkyWatch is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of both local and migratory wild birds that become injured or orphaned. Skywatch helps injured adult birds & orphaned baby birds such as: Aquatic/Wading birds, Birds of prey/Raptors, Song birds, Shore birds and many more, for release back to the wild. Under direction of wildlife rehabilitator: Amelia Mason, SkyWatch is currently one of the only resources legally licensed by the Us Fish & Wildlife that are actively helping injured wild birds in the Wilmington area.

Description

SkyWatch is dedicated to the rescue and rehab of all injured birds in and around the Wilmington NC area, both local wild birds & migratory birds. Wildlife rehabilitator Amelia Mason is state and federally licensed by the Us Fish & Wildlife to take in all injured or orphaned birds for rehabilitation and release back into the wild. In Wilmington there is VERY little help for wild birds that become injured or orphaned as babies, which is why Amelia started SkyWatch on her own time and expense. Amelia is currently one of the only people in the Wilmington area licensed and actively helping injured wild birds.

In great need of volunteers, and dependant on public donations. There are many ways to help even if you prefer not to physically be hands on with birds, Skywatch needs transport volunteers, fundraising volunteers, bake sales helpers, website support, phone support, daily maintenance, cage cleaning, etc. You can also work hands on with the birds if you prefer, learning how to raise orphan baby birds for release back to the wild, or learning about the rehab & medical procedures for injured birds. Skywatch rescues birds like: Waterfowl, Aquatic/Wading birds, Songbirds, Shore birds, Raptors/& other birds of prey, and many more.

The more volunteers get involved the bigger we can make SkyWatch and grow to a be the foremost avian rescue in an area where there is none. So many birds get injured every day and animal control cannot take in wildlife. There is no paid organziation or funded service that help injured wild birds in Wilmington, so it's up to the public to help the birds by getting involved with a legallly licensed rehabilitator to rescue birds on a non profit group based effort. There are so many different ways to help. Get involved and find out how many easy ways you can make a difference.
