International Bird Rescue launches internship program exclusively for San Pedro and Wilmington communities

At the intersection of commerce, industry and the natural environment, the San Pedro community commonly sees the effects of human activity on local wildlife.

International Bird Rescue has been a part of this community for over a decade, with our Los Angeles wildlife center located in Angel's Gate. And thanks to a new grant from the Harbor Community Benefit Foundation, we're excited to give our fellow neighbors the opportunity to learn how to care for injured and oiled animals through our new Academic Internship Program.

Offered exclusively to individuals ages 18 and over from Wilmington and San Pedro, the Academic Internship Program will engage those interested in biology, wildlife preservation or environmental conservation who want to make a difference. Two courses of study and training will be offered: animal care rehabilitation methods and a data analysis project based on clinical research conducted at the center by International Bird Rescue’s veterinary and rehabilitation team.

Students eligible for this internship program include those who have either resided in or attended colleges or universities in the San Pedro/Wilmington area, as well as exceptional high school seniors in the area who are at least 18 years of age at the start of the internship.

The new Academic Internship Program is made possible by a grant from the Harbor Community Benefit Foundation. Interns will receive a $1,000 total stipend, disbursed in regular increments during the course of their internships.

A world leader in oiled wildlife care, International Bird Rescue has managed and assisted in some of the world’s largest environmental catastrophes, including the Gulf Oil Spill in 2010 and the Exxon Valdez Spill in 1989.
