In an increasingly urbanized world, people are less likely to have personal knowledge of and experience with nature and wildlife. When they encounter wildlife in their communities, people both want and need information about how to co-exist with their wild neighbors. Reducing human wildlife conflicts can help both wildlife and humans.
Pacific Wildlife Care's goal is to provide this critical education which helps reduce human-wildlife conflicts and expands the sense of stewardship of the natural world. We do this by providing the following:
Our Hotline and Educational volunteers provide valuable assistance and advice to growing numbers of people who value wildlife and make personal efforts to help wild animals in need. Helping wildlife in need is not an easy task. Working with wildlife requires specialized knowledge, skill, and facilities. Potential dangers exist for the public, domestic animals, and wildlife when untrained and uninformed people attempt to provide care for wildlife.
