Aquatic Bird Rehabilitation

by Dave Weeshoff


Dave Weeshoff, docent with the International Bird Rescue Research Center in San Pedro and SFVAS Board member, presents “Aquatic Bird Rehabilitation,” a colorful slide presentation, describing in words and photographs how orphaned, sick, injured, and oiled aquatic birds (including pelicans, gulls, loons, grebes, terns, et al) are cleaned, rehabilitated, and released back into the wild, as well as what each of us can do to mitigate human impacts on our feathered friends. Dave’s photography and entertaining style promise to bring these subjects to life.


Dave is on the Board of Directors of the International Bird Rescue Research Center and the San Fernando Valley Audubon Society, and is a frequent guest speaker on environmental issues for Heal the Bay, an organization concerned with improving the water quality off the Southern California coast, and the Algalita Marine Research Foundation, concerned with the plague of plastic in the oceans.
