BACK TO THE WILD
Our mission is to provide humane care and rehabilitation to orphaned, ill, injured and displaced wildlife. The goal of our rehabilitation program is to release these animals back to the wild.
WE REHABILITATE INJURED, ORPHANED, SICK AND DISPLACED WILDLIFE TO GIVE THEM A SECOND CHANCE AT LIFE BY RETURNING THEM ’BACK TO THE WILD’
The goal of wildlife rehabilitation is to return recovered wildlife to their natural habitat as soon as they are capable of living independently in the wild. But it isn’t as simple as just letting them go. There are several factors to consider when it’s time to release them back to the wild. Keeping patients wild is key. While in our care we take every precaution to minimize human interaction with recovering patients.
Timing is everything. Weather, season, and even time of day are critical to ensuring that recovered wildlife can readjust to their environment with a minimal amount of stress. Orphans are released when they would naturally be leaving their parents’ care.
Location is critical. Ideally, wildlife is released close to where they came from. If that is not possible, a site is carefully selected based on species habitat (availability of food, water, and shelter) and man-made hazards. We are always looking for release sites for different species.
