International Bird Rescue Research Center
It's primary goals were developing oiled wildlife cleaning and rehabilitation techniques, promoting ongoing research in this field and providing oiled wildlife response capabilities. With an oil spill response team of 25 wildlife experts , IBRRC has managed the oiled bird rehabilitation efforts in nearly 150 oil spills in 11 states, including the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska. Our international work has taken us to seven different countries and two U.S. territories. Please read more about our efforts and research!

PDD ChallengePDD-What is it? It's a disease that can affect anyone's bird and it did affect "Mocha" a beloved Timneh. "Mocha's" mom is helping to raise money for research into this disease more commonly known as "wasting syndrome".

It is an inflammatory response characterized by the accumulation of lymphocytes and plasma cells in the central nervous system of the bird, which supplies the muscles of the digestive organs. Birds may seem depressed, lose weight, have constant or intermittent regurgitation, or have traces of unprocessed seed in their poop. "Mocha" is gone now, but not forgotten!

If you would like more information on Dr. Pepperberg's work, just click on the picture of Alex.
