April is National Volunteer Month, so naturally as a Dawn Wildlife Ambassador, I spent some time learning more about two of the centers that use Dawn Dish Soap to clean animals in need.
I traveled to San Francisco where it was just a short drive to International Bird Rescue, the organization I’ll talk about today (next time I’ll share my experience at the Marine Mammal Center). We spent the morning learning about how they rescue and rehabilitate birds that are either too young too fend for themselves, injured or in any way need assistance. This post will be a bit different but I think you’ll really enjoy it. Instead of ME telling you what I learned, I took a series of videos so you can see for yourself what they do and why they do it!
The first area we saw is where they examine the birds to determine what they need:
The little Pied Billed Grebe she’s talking about? Here he is just minutes later, swimming around during feeding time:
Examining a bird with a broken “leg”:
Just one month old and already full-size:
How and what are the birds fed?
Do they really use Dawn Dish Soap to clean their birds? YEP!! And they use a lot of it! See a demonstration here of how a bird is cleaned:
And who doesn’t love to hear success stories?
I was so inspired by the work they do at the International Bird Rescue Center. Be sure to visit their website to learn more about them and/or to give a donation. Every little bit helps!
