Wildlife Rehabilitation

Iowa Bird Rehabilitation is a nonprofit, volunteer based organization whose goal is to recover, rehabilitate and release orphaned and injured wild birds in the state of Iowa. We are licensed through the Iowa DNR and have a federal permit through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Our main goal is to rescue and rehabilitate wild birds admitted to our facility for medical care, with the ultimate goal of returning them to the wild. In 2021 we admitted over 1600 wild birds with a release rate of about 60%. We serve central Iowa and are 1 of only a small number of facilities in the entire state to have the proper permits to care for songbirds, waterfowl, shore birds, game birds, and small raptors.
