After nearly drowning in oil, this poor bird needs us!

This common merganser was rescued from a plant in East Chicago after becoming trapped in oil. Concerned workers contacted the Humane Indiana Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center in Valparaiso to help. 

The center has an extensive procedure to help birds impacted by oil. This means the merganser needs to undergo multiple baths with dishwashing soap, special rinses and dryings, incubation, and tube feedings. 

Many birds, especially those that spend significant time on water, are at risk of encountering oil. This can prevent them from flying, cause their feathers to mat or lose their natural waterproofing, and make them sick from ingesting oil while trying to clean themselves. Will you help give this merganser and other oil-impacted wildlife the space they need to recover?

Greater Good Charities' Rescue Rebuild program is headed to the Humane Indiana Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center for an exciting renovation this June, and you can be part of the project! With your help, the team will repair existing enclosures AND build several new enclosures with predator protection to keep ground birds safe during rehabilitation.

These life-changing updates will create safe spaces for a wide variety of species, from the bald eagle to foxes to reptiles! Will you help Rescue Rebuild improve the lives of these animals and support the amazing work of the Humane Indiana Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center? Donate NOW to make a difference by funding this build and future renovations with Rescue Rebuild!

Rescue Rebuild is a program of Greater Good Charities, whose mission is to make animal shelters more adoption-friendly by creating spaces that are engaging and enriching for pets and people alike. Rescue Rebuild works with shelters and wildlife sanctuaries to construct fun and welcoming environments alongside animal-loving volunteers.
