… International Bird Rescue
In 2006, I signed up to volunteer for this California-based group after reading about their efforts to save seabirds oiled as a result of a local spill. Though I had imagined the extent of my wildlife interaction would be feeding and cage cleaning, within weeks I had learned how to draw blood from a pelican and how tube feed a western grebe. Not exactly resume builders for an LGBT issues writer, but transformative experiences nonetheless.
International Bird Rescue, for which I am now proud to serve as a board member, co-managed oiled bird response operations during the 2010 Gulf oil spill and continues to work around the world on behalf of injured animals. bird-rescue.org
