Ways You Can Help

If you care about wildlife and want to help with its success and survival, there is a way that you can help. The work that we do is made possible by the generosity of donors, those who fund our work, and our dedicated volunteers, those who give their time.

Permanent Residents

In addition to our rehabilitation work, we also provide long-term care to a variety of North American mammals that cannot be returned to the wild. For these animals, we focus on providing facilities that meet their specific biological and behavioural needs.

Wildlife Myths and Tips

There are many myths about wildlife: feeding wildlife, finding young animals on their own, live-trapping wild animals. Understanding animal behaviours, particularly as it relates to raising young babies, and employing human deterrents can help us co-exist together.
