World Bird Sanctuary’s growth and commitment to improving the life of each bird in our care is important and exciting, but it also requires the commitment of our supporters. Proceeds will support all of World Bird Sanctuary and help us fulfill our mission through education, propagation, field studies and rehabilitation. Birds don’t understand numbers or budgets, they just know they can count on us to get them the food and care they need every day of the year. We receive no governmental funding, and operate fully on the revenue earned from our educational programming and donations from the public. Our birds need you! We are grateful for your support!

Roads Accessing the Sanctuary Have Changed

There is no longer a detour to get to World Bird Sanctuary, however, smart phone GPS units have not yet been updated to the new road changes to get to our site from the intersections of 141 and 44. The WAZE app is the only one that we know of that will bring you correctly in through all the new road/exit changes.

Non-Profit Status

World Bird Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides refuge to over 270 residents and rehabilitation and emergency care for up to 400 patients every year. We receive no state, federal or county funding and rely on donations from the public, corporate and foundation supporters to achieve our mission.
