On Friday Mark Salling celebrated his 30th birthday and instead of asking for gifts from his fans, the “Glee” actor hopes people will send donations to a California wildlife center.

Salling reached out to his Twitter followers and tweeted, “Thanks, love all of u, it would really make make my bday happy if u holler a dollar or whatever u can to http://wildlifecareofventura.org . #unsungheroes [sic]”

The Wildlife Care of Ventura County is an animal rescue, rehabilitation and release center in California. First founded in 1994, the center takes care of native wildlife. As the website reads, “Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and release injured and orphaned wild animals as well as educating the public on how to co–exist with our wild neighbors.”

If you didn’t know, Salling is a huge wildlife supporter. He especially loves birds. For a while now, he has closely been working with the organization and campaigned on their behalf by posing with a great horned owl. Check out one of the photos here.

Happy belated birthday, Mark! Hopefully, you had a great celebration and all of your birthday wishes come true.
