Bird Ally X is a nonprofit organization of wildlife caregivers dedicated to wildlife rescue, rehabilitation, education and advocacy.
The organization was formed by experienced rehabilitators seeing a need to to share quality information as well as provide direct aid to individual wild animals in trouble.
Wildlife rehabilitation: giving injured and orphaned wild animals a second chance, returning them to the wild after appropriate treatment.
Rehabilitators use protocols, research, and veterinary consultation, as well as respectful empathy with wild animals.
Wildlife rehabilitation is regulated by state and federal agencies, and by the National Wildlife Rehabilitators Association Code of Ethics.
helping wild animals in trouble…
Bird Ally X operates the Humboldt Wildlife Care Center, an animal rehabilitation facility serving the northwest corner of California. HWCC, founded in 1979, began as a network serving the region. HWCC started working with BAX in 2011 and the two organizations officially merged in 2014.
At our center, we admit injured wild animals and provide quality treatment to over 1000 wild animal patients a year, with the goal of releasing them back to the wild.
We also help resolve conflicts between people and wildlife, [such as raccoons nesting inside houses and other situations] with our Humane Solutions Team.
BAX has the expertise to help wildlife affected by oil spills and other emergencies, and is part of the Oiled Wildlife Care Network.
…and the people who provide care for them
Sharing professional knowledge about wildlife care is an important part of our mission.
We publish books and other reference literature for our colleagues and neighbors.
We offer workshops and consultations for rehabilitators, as well as internships.
Our Wildlife Education Team brings presentations to schools and community groups throughout the area.
We advocate for wild animals, addressing issues and public policy from a rehabilitation perspective.
