Another way to help our mission is to volunteer to transport already contained birds in distress from one place to another. This is a time saver that is critical to our efforts in answering to the many distress calls we receive.
For those of you who want to get down and dirty, APCH offers a Rescue/Transport Seminar that introduces individuals how to properly and safely rescue injured, orphaned or sick dangerous birds and how to secure them for a safe transport to a federally licensed wildlife rehabilitator, Veterinary Hospital or center. This class is the first step to becoming a First Responder for our cause.
Volunteering at a center after this course is mandatory to the process.
