Event Details

Come on out and enjoy this unique opportunity to provide immediate assistance to our feathered friends. Pigeons share our space and because of this, they end up with string, hair, and debris wrapped around their toes so tightly that it causes immense pain. Eventually, their toes lose circulation, become amputated, or develop severe infections. We can help our bird friends by removing the string before it gets too serious, providing medical care, and releasing them back to their flocks!
During this event, we will be walking through the streets of San Francisco. Bring water and patience as it can take a long time to identify and catch an individual before having the opportunity to help them. We will have a training session before we begin to go over what you will be doing as well as a presentation, by Dr. Rebecca Gooley, about rodenticide bait boxes that we will look for along the way. After you attend the training, presentation, and have participated in a destringing, you will receive a certification of achievement and your very own destringing kit! The skills you learn today you can take home or put into practice anytime you see a bird in need.
*Note that for the safety of the birds we ask that you if you do this workshop you don’t visit an animal sanctuary within a week
