We’re excited to announce that we’ve acquired four highly endangered vultures: three Western subspecies Egyptian vultures and one Bearded vulture. These vultures are both highly endangered and rare in captivity.
Thanks to a generous contribution from Subsurface Contractors, Inc., every single dollar donated from donors like you will be matched up to $ 10,000 dollars for immediate care, feeding and habitat for these incredible birds.
We’re off to a good start but we need your help now! Please consider making a tax-refundable contribution today. Donate now and double your impact! Please help us in helping the birds of World Bird Sanctuary!

Painting is a form of enrichment for our crows and ravens. They are extremely intelligent animals and love to learn, so teaching them to paint is fun and rewarding for them. They receive treats for each time they place the sponge on the canvas. The trainers pick the color palette, but it is up to the birds where the sponge is placed on the canvas, thus, creating a one of a kind painting each and every time. Paintings will come with a certificate of authenticity. They are made with non-toxic tempera paint. They are also sprayed with a matte UV resistant sealant.
Adopt one of resident animals for yourself or as a gift. Your adoption provides housing, food and care for the bird (or animal) you adopt.
