Wellington Bird Rehabilitation Trust

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!

Thank you for looking after an injured pigeon today (01/07/2021) and everything you guys do daily for our local birds. I have set this donation for a monthly basis.

Hi there, I’ll be dropping of a mallard duckling tomorrow- “Boots” - and I want to support you in your work long term. I might be able to volunteer in the future (I’m unwell at the moment) but I know money is needed most of all. Thank you for all you do, and I’ll tell friends and family about the plant sales too.

Dear Carolynne, I am guessing you are the lovely lady that was looking to rescue a bird off the motorway. I really appreciate your caring for this bird and your generous donation towards keeping us in operation. We can not do what we do without rescuers like you and financial supporters like you. Thanks so much!! Keep warm and dry :-) Kind regards Craig
