Wildlife Sanctuary of NW Florida

 

 

 

 

 

 

Who We Are

We are a non-profit organization based in Pensacola, Florida, that works to provide appropriate care to injured or orphaned indigenous wildlife. We receive injured or orphaned wildlife, provide medical care and fostering during recovery, and rehabilitate and release wildlife, if possible. We work in cooperation with local, state, and federal wildlife agencies. We also provide educational outreach and conduct educational programs.

 

How You Can Help

The Wildlife Sanctuary's motto is "Receive, Rehab, Release." We are doing wonderful work, releasing large numbers of rehabilitated wildlife or giving them a peaceful sanctuary. But our operating expenses are huge, and they are rising. We depend on the generosity of the public. Our volunteers are dedicated and hard-working people who give up much of their time to lend a helping hand. Please help us continue our important work. Please Donate.

 

Join us in working to preserve and support our sanctuary. Membership in Friends of the Wildlife Sanctuary is fully tax deductible. We now accept MC, VISA and Discover cards or through Paypal using the link above. You may also print this Nonvoting Annual Membership form and mail with your contribution today to:

Volunteering

Thank you for your interest in the Wildlife Sanctuary's Volunteer Program. We look forward to meeting you.  If you have any questions please contact me, Darleen Willis, at wildlifevolunteer@att.net.  As the Volunteer Coordinator, I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.  You may download a copy of the volunteer application or pick one up at the front desk 7 days a week between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm.   

 

Internship Program

Spring and summer are the busiest seasons for the Wildlife Sanctuary. During these months we often receive 30-40 animals per day (3000+ each year). The primary role of a wildlife rehabilitation intern is to assist caring for these animals, many of whom are orphans. The internship is INTENSE, PHYSICALLY DEMANDING, FAST PACED AND REPETATIVE, giving interns the opportunity to learn about many aspects of wildlife rehabilitation.

 

Interns gain valuable practical experience while working with the Wildlife Sanctuary staff and volunteers. Some of the skills learned include individual species identification, animal handling, hand and tube-feeding birds and mammals, medication administration, charting procedures, species specific dietary requirements and care, animal intake and public education.
