Bird Ally X and the Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge has an immediate need for volunteers to help care for wildlife impacted by Avian Botulism at the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge Complex. Avian botulism is a strain of botulism that affects wild bird populations, most notably waterfowl and is not contagious. This is an opportunity to learn the foundational skills of wild aquatic bird rehabilitation and help by providing supportive care for local wildlife.
Individuals who can commit to 1-2 week full-time volunteer days have the option of free housing on the refuge.
Volunteer duties will include rescue transport, handling patients for exam, preparing food, cleaning & preparing enclosures, washing dishes, laundry, and patient housing construction.
The working conditions are outside and may involve hard physical labor. Please bring a water bottle and wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty.
