International Bird Rescue

Fairfield and San Pedro

International Bird Rescue (Bird Rescue) has been helping birds around the world since 1971. Its mission is to mitigate human impact on aquatic birds and other wildlife. This is achieved through rehabilitation, emergency response, education, research, planning and training.

International Bird Rescue manages the Los Angeles Oiled Bird Care and Education Center (LAOBCEC, San Pedro) and San Francisco Bay Oiled Wildlife Care and Education Center (SFBOWCEC, Fairfield) for marine bird rehabilitation during non-spill periods.

International Bird Rescue joined the OWCN in 1996.
