Emergency Care Efforts-Guam

We're #closedbutstillcaring — and we need your help

The National Aviary's birds continue to need our care - after all, their lives have not changed amid this pandemic. With more than 550 birds and mammals, this is a great challenge. But it's one you can help us rise to meet. When you give today, your gift will be matched, thanks to the generous support of the National Aviary Board of Trustees.

Please donate today to double your gift.

 


We are hopeful for healing. 

Your donation helps birds like the Guam Kingfisher and the Guam Rail.

The National Aviary plays a critical role in saving endangered birds through collaborative breeding programs, field conservation, and educational programs. Today, even during a pandemic, that important work continues. You help to make it all possible.

The island of Guam was once home to an abundance of bird species like the Guam Rail and Guam Kingfisher, until an invasive species--the Brown Tree Snake--decimated their populations. Scientists took notice and moved as many birds as they could to conservation facilities, including the National Aviary.

 

  

The National Aviary leads the way in the fight to save these birds from extinction by developing breeding protocols and actively caring for Guam Rails, Guam Kingfishers, and their chicks.

In just the past four years, we've successfully raised 14 Guam Kingfishers, and a new chick just hatched in our state-of-the-art Breeding Center this spring! The National Aviary has also successfully introduced more Guam Rails into the wild than any other organization in North America, boosting their wild population. Because of this important work, Guam Rails are no longer categorized as extinct in the wild!

Your gift will be matched up to $40,000, thanks to the National Aviary Board of Trustees, who are issuing a Board matching challenge during this critical time!
