 By surprising your family and friends with these one-of-a-kind gifts they will feel special because their gift will also help the World Bird Sanctuary fulfill its mission through wildlife rehabilitation and environmental education.  Your gift may help to save the life of a wildlife hospital patient, feed one of our birds for the year, or present an educational program to an underprivileged child.

Shop Green on Black Friday and give a gift with meaning!
Below is a selection of special gifts available from World Bird Sanctuary this holiday season.
