We are Wild for Life: Center for Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc. - a nonprofit that believes rehabilitation is our responsibility to give back to the environment.
At Wild for Life, our mission is to facilitate the protection, conservation, and preservation of local ecosystems through wildlife rehabilitation, while also actively participating in public education. With our goal being the successful release back into the wild, we continue to develop the knowledge and techniques necessary for the exceptional, compassionate, and knowledgeable care for each orphaned or injured wildlife species. Unfortunately, the vast majority of animals received by Wild for Life are brought to us as a result of human interaction. Whether it be an owl who is tangled in barbed wire or an orphaned nest of songbirds due to habitat destruction, our efforts in rehabilitation must be supported by public education.
We provide memorable and meaningful educational programs to a variety of local organizations within our community. This encompasses schools, after-school programs, libraries, civic organizations, children’s camps, as well as other venues. It is the children of today who are responsible for protecting the environment of tomorrow and the preservation of the precious world we share. We firmly believe that our educational outreach programs constitute a vital and necessary step towards creating a world in which sustainability and ecological responsibility compliment and fulfill human life.We are licensed by the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission and federally licensed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to possess rehabilitation and educational wild animals. Wild for Life is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We are funded solely by public donations, receiving no federal or state funding, and are run strictly by volunteers.
