Twice each year, in one of nature’s most amazing events, billions of birds make enormous and hazardous journeys from their breeding grounds to wintering areas. Some travel as much as 25,000 miles every year, from the high Arctic to the tip of South America and back. Of the more than 500 bird species found in San Diego, almost 2/3 of them migrate into or out of the area every spring and fall. Join avid birder Stan Walens, who has collected almost 40 years of data on seabird populations in San Diego, talk about how the fascinating process of migration works and the benefits and problems it presents.
Join Project Coyote Ranching with Wildlife Coordinator, Keli Hendricks, for a lively presentation about coexisting with coyotes. Topics will include coyote safety, education, and programs and resources available to help residents and communities better understand and coexist with our wild neighbors.
It’s that time of year again, baby season!! Each year, San Diego Humane Society’s Project Wildlife takes in up to 13,000 orphaned and injured wild animals with the hopes of returning them to their native habitats.
Important Update: Dog Owner Surrender Services on Hold
Due to incidents of a highly contagious respiratory disease affecting dogs in our care, all San Diego Humane Society campuses (including San Diego, El Cajon, Escondido and Oceanside locations) are pausing the intake of owner-surrendered dogs until Jan. 2, 2024, except in emergencies that threaten the health of the pet. We also request that all relinquishments of other species be made by appointment only. Fees for anyone picking up their lost dog from San Diego Humane Society are also waived through Jan. 2, 2024.
