New York City poses a lot of threat to birds. With glass skyscrapers, tall monuments and a general lack of nature, birds often get injured when flying through the City. The Wild Bird Fund is one agency that is helping these birds get their wings back.
The Wild Bird Fund 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 to provide medical care and rehabilitation to native and passing migrant wildlife so that they can be released back into the wild. We are the only rehabilitation facility for Wildlife in New York City.
