BirdCare Aotearoa is a registered charity dedicated to providing 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 Aotearoa New Zealand by the sheer number of birds cared for, admitting over 6,000 birds every year.
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, veterinary clinics, and other wildlife rehabilitators.
Alongside our rehabilitation and release services, we engage in research and advocacy, and provide education and training for other wildlife rehabilitators, veterinarians and allied professionals, wildlife rangers, students, and members of the public who want to learn how to make a positive difference in the lives of wild birds.
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.
With your generous support, we give wild birds a second chance at life.
