BirdCare Aotearoa is a registered charity dedicated to providing professional care and rehabilitation for sick, injured, and orphaned wild birds.
Based in Green Bay, Auckland, we are the largest avian hospital and rehabilitation centre in New Zealand by the sheer number of birds we care for, admitting over 6,000 birds annually.
Most birds are brought to us by members of the public, as well as by the SPCA, Department of Conservation, Auckland Council, Fish & Game New Zealand, Coastguard, Police, veterinary clinics, and other wildlife rehabilitators.
We also engage in research and advocacy, and provide education and training for professionals, volunteers and members of the public who want to learn how to make a positive difference in the lives of our feathered friends.
Established in 2009 as the New Zealand Bird Rescue Charitable Trust (NZBRCT), we have evolved from a “cottage rescue centre” to a professional wildlife hospital and rehabilitation centre. In 2021, we rebranded to BirdCare Aotearoa.
Birds come to us from throughout New Zealand and with your generous support, we give them a second chance at life.
