Pacific Wildlife Care...
Treats and rehabilitates injured wildlife
PWC treats and rehabilitates injured wildlife in its Rehabilitation Center: a place of refuge where injured, sick, orphaned, and pollution-damaged wildlife are expertly cared for, rehabilitated, and returned to the wild. PWC operates under permits issued by California Department of Fish & Wildlife and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
Maintains a year-round telephone "Hotline" for the public
PWC's Hotline is open every day of the year to respond to public appeals for help with distressed wildlife as well as concerns about problem wildlife.
Works with government and other agencies to protect wildlife
PWC, in conjunction with the Oiled Wildlife Care Network (OWCN), provides care for oiled wildlife and, in the event of an oil spill or other environmental crisis, will operate as a Primary Care Facility for OWCN. We provide a specially trained response team that works to reduce injury to and suffering of wildlife impacted by pollution damage.
Teaches the public about urban wildlife
PWC conducts educational presentations for both youth and adult groups, and participates in a variety of community events.
Trains and supports a diverse volunteer group
PWC maintains an expert team of wildlife caregivers, transporters, and communicators who work to give wildlife a second chance in the wild.
