JOIN OUR INITIATIVE!
MWBC’s rehabilitation program concentrates on wild birds – the animals most commonly affected by the presence of humans in our sub-tropical islands. In the last decade, we have treated more than 5,500 birds of 70-plus species, from warblers to eagles. Taking advantage of the large number and variety of wild birds admitted for care at the center, MWBC continues to develop new and better methods of animal husbandry and medical treatments. Current areas of interest include:
– Developing appropriate uses of medications in wild birds
– Exploring improvements in nutritional supplementation
– Redefining the use of saltwater therapy pools for debilitate sea birds.
Our ongoing program has also allowed MWBC’s volunteer staff to gain extensive experience in bird care.
