We are selling a one-of-a-kind t-shirt to raise money for the Kathryn G. Favre Wildlife Hospital at World Bird Sanctuary. Your t-shirt purchase goes towards the care and treatment of the wild birds admitted to us. Get yours now before time is up!

Our t-shirt design was created by a very talented artist, Sarah Becan. We are honored that she would donate her talent to support our cause!

The rehabilitation of a single injured bird of prey costs up to $1000 and over 300 patients are treated each year at our hospital. The Kathyrn G. Favre Wildlife Hospital is a cornerstone of the World Bird Sanctuary and is entirely funded by donations from the public.

An Experience to Remember

The World Bird Sanctuary rests peacefully on 305 acres of Missouri hardwood forest, next door to Lone Elk County Park and Chubb Trail. We are open daily from 8am - 5pm, and closed only on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Free entry and parking. The World Bird Sanctuary features free seasonal shows, nature trails, educational programs and picnic pavilions. Come see ourlive displays of Bald Eagles, Owls, Hawks, Falcons, Vultures, Parrots, Reptiles and much more!

Our mission is to preserve the earth′s biological diversity and to secure the future of threatened bird species in their natural environments. We work to fulfill this mission through education, propagation, field studies and rehabilitation.
