The mission of Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research is to provide professional, compassionate rehabilitation to native injured and orphaned wild birds and contaminated wildlife, and to promote their stewardship through education and humane research.
When wild, native birds have been found sick, hurt, orphaned, or oiled, Delaware turns to Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research. And now we are turning to you to ask for help on their behalf. As the only wildlife rehabilitator in Delaware permitted by US Fish and Wildlife Service to care for wild, native birds, we're committed to providing professional, compassionate treatment for each one of our patients.
You can help us save wild lives by donating to Tri-State during the Do More 24 Delaware Campaign. Together, we can make a real difference for birds in desperate need of care!
In 2022, our Oiled Wildlife Response Team answered the call for seven incidents involving wildlife contamination all along the east coast, including several incidents in adjoining states. We are on call 24/7 when an event occurs!
Caring for these helpless animals is our mission, but it doesn’t come free. Whether a majestic Great Blue Heron or a tiny Goldfinch, every bird receives food, medicine, housing, and care tailored to its species and individual needs. Because of people like you, Tri-State is able to reunite a nest of fallen owlets with their parents, provide life-saving therapy for a lead-poisoned eagle, and surgically repair broken wing so that a Snow Goose can be ready for its Fall migration. Your support today means we will be there for the next bird that needs a second chance, just like this Northern Saw-whet Owl that was struck by a vehicle...
