Wellington Bird Rehabilitation Trust

We are a totally unfunded bird charity that takes in orphaned, sick & injured birds for care and where possible release back to the wild.


Here at Wellington Bird Rehabilitation Trust we provide care for all birds in need, including native and non-native species alike. We treat and care for a wide spectrum of birds a year. Every bird has a story to tell and a life that is worth saving, here we intend to ensure the best possible outcome for all our feathered friends.

We provide treatment, rehabilitation and refuge to over 1000 birds each year. We accept in any bird in any condition ranging from the orphaned, sick and injured to casualties of man-made pollution and toxic spillages.

We routinely collaborate with animal welfare networks, groups and facilities to further our cause and enhance our knowledge and skills with wildlife rehabilitation.

We rely heavily on the support and good will of others as we are totally unfunded and privately run, we graciously accept and utilise public donations to keep our facility in operation. With the support we receive from donors we are able to continue our mission of keeping the birds happy, healthy and free.

Thankyou for your generosity!

Hi Finlay, thanks so much for your donation! Every $ helps and as our costs creep up and the number of birds we see increases donations help us to provide better outcomes for more wildlife that is bought to us so thanks again Finlay :-) Kind regards Craig

Thankyou for your help with our little Ruru and all the work you do ❤️
Wellington Bird Rehabilitation Trust

Hi Victoria and thanks to you and your partner for caring enough to get the badly injured Ruru to us! Sadly the large open fracture to its wing meant we had to humanely euthanise it but at least it passed quickly and is now out of pain due to your prompt action. We can't do what we do without caring people like yourselves looking out for sick and injured wildlife and bringing it to us so that we can do the best we can to help it. Your donation is also hugely appreciated as every single $ helps pay for the many costs that go into running WBRT :-) Take care and thanks! Craig
