Sacramento Heron and Egret Rescue’s volunteers help to rescue hundreds of birds every year! Look at these faces. How can you not want to help them?
Our trained volunteers search for birds who need help every single day during nesting season (May through September), and transport them to a wildlife rehabilitation facility as soon as possible. We transport birds to our partners at Wildlife Care Association in Sacramento, Gold Country Wildlife Rescue in Auburn, and the International Bird Rescue in Fairfield, where they receive medical care, are given time to mature and strengthen, and are ultimately released into a more natural environment. You can find more information on these community partners on our Partners Page.
Our #1 need is volunteers to help on our emergency response bird rescue team (active May-September every year). We provide the training, you provide your time and your vehicle to help rescue birds in the field and then transport them to safe havens.
