800+ strong and growing! Members, donors, volunteers & staff working together to support the wildlife of San Luis Obispo County through rehabilitation and educational outreach.
Pacific Wildlife Care is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
What We Do
We treat nearly 3,000 wild animal patients every year, from over 200 different species. Our goal? To return healthy animals to the wild! We also provide educational presentations for local organizations and schools.
[Wildlife rehabilitation] "is a process of coming to know something quite unlike you, to understand it well enough not only to keep it alive but also to put it back, like a puzzle piece, into the gap in the world it left behind."
-- Helen Macdonald, author of H is for Hawk

Thanks for everyone who participated this week! This one was a little more challenging but it is the talon of our educational ambassador Morro the Peregrine Falcon! Those long toes and bumps on their feet help them catch and grip prey better 🙂.
