Keeping NYC wild.
The only wildlife rehabilitation center in New York City, the nonprofit Wild Bird Fund treats more than 9,500 patients a year with the goal of releasing them back to the wild. They include red-tailed hawks and peregrine falcons, as well as songbirds, ducks, gulls and pigeons. Squirrels, opossums and groundhogs too!
The city can be a tough place for wildlife, but it’s also a thriving habitat, with more than 250 different species of birds recorded in Central Park. We aim to keep it that way. To this end, we also provide wildlife education programs to schools and organizations throughout the city. We do all this through the generous donations of many caring New Yorkers.
