If you're looking for a place to give a last minute donation to a 501(c)3 non-profit organization so you claim it on your 2009 taxes, you're looking in the right place. If your looking to donate to a non-profit organization who cares about the wildlife who can't always take care of it self, think of Bird TLC.
We've had 34 bald eagles come into our clinic this year. Everything from being shot, electrocuted, caught in fishing lines, avalanches and just about anything you can think of.
We've done live bird presentations all over Alaska in schools, private organizations, youth groups and many more, educating the public about the wild birds in our state. All of our birds in our education program are not releasable because of injuries or illnesses that prevent them from being able to care for themselves in the wild.
We care for all birds native to Alaska or migrate through Alaska. That means songbirds, water fowl, raptors, corvids, etc. Every bird gets a second chance.
And every bird that can be released back to the wild is. Last year our release rate averaged about 55%. That's above the national average. Our staff and dedicated volunteers care for these birds 365 days a year.
We don't have a steady income from any government agency. We rely on donations from corporations and caring citizens.
If you would like to donate, go to www.birdtlc.net. On the home page you can specifically donate to BE 09-31 for his beak repairs. You can also go to our Sponsor page and donate for a specific species in rehab, or you can go to our Donations page and donate to Bird TLC in general. Any way you choose, you can be assured that your money will be used to give the best possible care to the wild birds of Alaska.
