A rail’s presence indicates a functioning tidal salt marsh ecosystem and we have been working with scientific partners to make sure these birds can thrive in the wild.
|Your help is important. Contributions to the Animal Wish List provide specialized diets, enrichment, and veterinary care for these birds and all the animals that call The Living Coast home. |
Together we can fight the extinction of the light-footed Ridgway’s rail and support native wildlife conservation in our region.
Your #GivingTuesday gift will be matched up to $2,500
