Remember WBS in your annual giving and help keep birds off the endangered species list.
Walter C. Crawford, Jr. founded World Bird Sanctuary over 35 years ago, with one goal - protect our threatened bird species and their habitats.
Over the last 35 years we have successfully released many hawks, eagles, owls, vultures, peregrine falcons and other birds of prey to the wild. We gave them a second chance.
This would not have been possible without your help.
Patriot is a Bald Eagle that was hatched in the wild and rescued after her nest was blown into a river. She recovered from the pneumonia, but it had left her lungs so scarred that she did not have the lung capacity required to be able to fly and hunt. She would have died if she was returned to the wild.
Patriot is a vital part of our environmental education team - she travels with a purpose: to teach children and adults about the threats facing Bald Eagles and other bird species in North America and around the world.
PATRIOT'S STORY HELPS US KEEP EAGLES WILD
With your help, we can ensure that more birds are released back to the wild.
You can help protect our national symbol
After 18 months, a Bald Eagle found hanging from fishing line by the wing was returned to the wild.
Our wildlife hospital admits 300-400 birds per year, and we successfully release most of them back to the wild. We could not have done this without the help of our supporters.
Your donation to World Bird Sanctuary today will help us ensure future successes like the 7 bald eagles and countless owls and hawks that we rehabilitated and returned to the wild this year.
YOU CAN BE A PART OF OUR MISSION SUCCESS!
The mission of the World Bird Sanctuary is to preserve the earth's biological diversity and to secure the future of threatened bird species in their natural environments. We work to fulfill this mission through education, propagation, field studies and rehabilitation.
Help us educate others to make the choices that can help them protect our environment. You can be confident that your donation today will help Patriot continue to spread her story and that of others like her!
We have over 30 years of success in achieving our mission through our four focus areas, and numerous accolades and awards for our achievements in wildlife conservation and education.
The World Bird Sanctuary is a consistently successful and credible conservation organization, which makes investing in us one of the safest philanthropic decisions you can make.
We will use your donation wisely.
