Do you have an injured, ill, or orphaned bird, but don’t know what to do? The St. Louis region has several great resources that provide care for birds. The sites below have information on how to reach the organization and what to do if you find an injured or orphaned bird.
**Please note: People are not supposed to take wildlife across state lines so they should contact the rehabilitation center in the state the animal was found. Riverlands, however, is on the border of Missouri and Illinois so often animals from here go to either state.
Can assist in finding a rehabilitator in Missouri and Illinois. They will provide information of the closest rehabilitation center to the caller for the animal that they have. They accept most Missouri native wildlife.
