What They Do:
We care for several thousand injured, orphaned, sick and displaced wildlife annually. Many of those animals are in distress as a direct result of human activity.
As part of our mandate we work on habitat protection and restoration, education and mitigation to help prevent wildlife from being in distress in the first place.
We initiate and participate in a variety of research studies to help bring about mitigation in the form of habitat protection, preservation and road mortality prevention.
Aside from that we offer assistance to several thousand wild animals annually by way of providing medical care and a safe environment for the animals to recover from their injuries or illness all the while ensuring we keep the wild nature of the animal in mind.
- Education: Showing people methods to peacefully coexist with wildlife
- Research: Demonstrating through data collection the need to put in place measures to prevent road mortality and the importance of habitat protection/restoration
- Mitigation: By offering up viable solution to reduce wildlife from being in distress and utilizing our volunteer work force to assist with implementing mitigating measures
- Rehabilitation: When we can't prevent wildlife from being in distress we offer (medical) assistance to the animal with the end goal of returning them to the wild where they belong.
We create change by putting in place real and practical solutions and measures to prevent wildlife from being in distress.
When that can't be prevented we provide medical care and a safe haven for the animal until it is fit to return to the wild.
We hope to achieve that our services as a wildlife rehabilitation center will no longer be needed, but failing that we strive to grow into a state of the art wildlife rehabilitation, wildlife research and education center.
We work with an all volunteer staff and rely on donations and grants for funding. 100% of your donations go towards the wildlife we care for.
