The Atlantic Wildlife Institute promotes learning and awareness about the links between environmental health and human wellness through its work in wildlife rescue, rehabilitation, and research. It collaborates willingly with all who share its commitment to fostering a mutually beneficial relationship between people and nature. Strictly non-partisan, it shares a vision of the world in which people are partners and stewards, rather than exploiters. The slogan, “Helping Nature Help You” exemplifies this ideal.
About ATLANTIC WILDLIFE INSTITUTE/INSTITUT ATLANTIQUE DE LA FAUNE
The Atlantic Wildlife Institute, formerly known as Maritime Atlantic Wildlife, was established in 1996, near Sackville, New Brunswick. A provincially and federally licensed wildlife rehabilitation facility, it studies displaced wildlife to determine causes of displacement and integrates its findings with larger issues of environmental education and management. It provides young people with exceptional opportunities for experiential learning about nature. Other AWI programs include: ecological research; safe wildlife handling; consultation and response in wildlife-related emergencies.
