What is Wildlife Rehabilitation?
Wildlife rehabilitation is the care of injured or orphaned wild animals with the specific goal of returning them to their native habitat with an optimal chance of survival. This involves emergency care, long-term rehabilitation, conditioning for release and ultimately, release back into the wild.
Wildlife rehabilitation is a humane and rewarding endeavor, which benefits both wildlife and people. Caring for individual animals, we gather information that is relevant to the entire species and gives us a better understanding of how these creatures relate to our world in its entirety.
