Sponsor a Wild Thing

Portland Audubon's Wildlife Care Center provides a permanent home for several non-releasable native birds. Each of these birds came to us with an injury so severe that they would be unable to survive in the wild.

Sponsoring a bird is a great way to learn more about these incredible creatures while helping us meet the birds' food, medical, and housing needs. You will also provide support for our education bird program, in which the birds serve as ambassadors for their species and Portland Audubon in classrooms and at events.

Your support will help provide:

  • Food - we provide a natural, species specific diet for each bird.
  • Health care - an annual exam, routine diagnostic tests, vaccinations and any special care needed.
  • Bird handler training - handlers go through extensive training about bird behavior, natural history and legal issues.
  • Housing - each bird has a safe, appropriate cage that is cleaned and inspected daily.
  • Accessories and equipment - appropriate jesses, perches, handling gloves and traveling cases.

As a Wild Thing Sponsor, you will receive: A tax deductible adoption, a beautiful color photo of your bird, a collectible Wild Thing button featuring your bird, a genuine Wild Thing Sponsor Certificate, a personal history of your sponsored bird, general information on the species, information about helping injured wildlife, and recognition on a Wild Thing sponsor board in the care center.
