Grant Recipient WildCare featured on NBC Bay Area

August 27, 2014

WildCare, a Bay Area animal rescue and educational organization, had one of its baby bird nest knitting program featured on NBC News. 

Orphaned baby birds need to be kept warm. Fabric nests provide them with warmth and cushioning while they’re cared for in WildCare's Wildlife Hospital … woolen nests are perfect.


WildCare received nearly 2,500 nests from from California, Minnesota, Texas, Florida, New York, Ontario, Washington, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Indiana — some even from as far away places as Melbourne, Australia and Kiev, Ukraine!

Bently Foundation is proud to help support this local wildlife organization — birds are extremely important to California's ecosystem. WildCare's bird nest campaign was such a huge success thanks to the knitters & crafters from all around the globe!
