Wild Bird Fund

Wild Bird Fund, New York City’s only wildlife rehabilitation and education center, is a state and federally licensed 501(c)(3) that cares for the injured, ill and orphaned wildlife of New York City.

Our mission is two-fold: first, to provide medical care and rehabilitation for the injured, ill, and orphaned wildlife of New York City and to release them back to the wild; and second, to educate New Yorkers--particularly the young--about the rich diversity and environmental needs of the city’s wildlife.

WBF treats over 1,500 wild birds and animals each year. Our patients include both native and migratory birds, from the American robin to rarities such as Virginia rails and saw-whet owls.


We hope you will join us!
