Wonderful organization with great people, I love learning about the birds there and helping IBR take care of them. Everyone is very helpful there and any skill you have can be put to use.

The people are lovely here ... friendly & funny & smart, and 101% dedicated to the birds. (My last volunteer date is only an estimate.) I volunteered with International Bird Rescue for about a year, learning a lot and loving the experience. Go help the birds! Your life will not be the same. Oh, yeah, I nearly forgot. I now have three chickens. I learned to love birds with these fine folks. You will, too, if you don't already. You've been warned. :)
