The Center treats and cares for 225 different species of animals from the local area. Over the years we have treated over 75,000 wild animals. This includes sick, injured and orphaned native and naturalized wild animals such as hummingbirds, snapping turtles, raccoons, foxes, cottontails, hawks, owls and many others. The care is conducted under the direction of veterinarians, wildlife rehabilitators, and veterinary technicians. High school and undergraduate interns do much of the day-to-day care giving students the opportunity to work with and study up-close the biology of many species. These are animals that students would otherwise never have the opportunity to contact. The care proffered to wildlife succeeds about one-half of the time. All animals successfully rehabilitated are released back to local woodlands and estuaries.
