The Wildlife Rescue Center rehabilitates injured, sick and orphaned native wildlife and releases healthy animals to their natural habitat. Through educational outreach the Center provides environmental awareness,
promotes a harmonious relationship with native wildlife, and encourages the community to protect our delicate ecosystems.
Annually the Wildlife Rescue Center fields over 10,000 calls from the public who ask for assistance and advice concerning encounters with wildlife. Due to the destruction of habitat, encounters with wildlife
are inevitably more frequent. In 2012, we provided services to more than 2,400 native wildlife patients from over 50 species.
The Wildlife Rescue Center provides educational programming which reaches thousands of children and adults annually. On-site presentations introduce audiences to the tremendous biodiversity around us and encourage
respect for all wildlife and our delicate ecosystems.
