I recently visited the booth of the South Bay Wildlife Rehab (SBWR) at the “Whale of Day” event that took place at the Point Vicente Interpretive Center in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA. When I first walked up to the booth, I thought the birds that were on display were stuffed animals. On further review and with a nudge from my Mother-in-law, I took a closer look and then realized that the birds on the perches were in fact real. In talking with the volunteers, I was given a different perspective of how important this organization is in rehabilitating the birds of California. I don’t think I could explain what they do any better than what is stated on their website. With that said, please take a look at the following information taken directly from www.sbwr.org:
South Bay Wildlife Rescue is dedicated to caring for California native birds and educating the public about the natural world. They rehabilitate over 1000 sick, injured and orphaned birds for return to the wild every year and see over 30,000 children and adults with wildlife and environmental education. SBWR has state and federal permits for wildlife rehabilitation and wildlife education.
South Bay Wildlife Rehab was officially formed as a non-profit corporation in 1993. Ann Lynch, the founder and Director, has over 40 years of experience in wildlife rehabilitation and wildlife and environmental education. The organization is located in Los Angeles County, California and services all of Los Angeles County, and parts of Ventura, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.
I love what this organization stands for and would encourage everyone to find out more. They are always looking for volunteers.
