Wild for Life

WHAT THEY DO: The primary missions of Wild for Life are avian rehabilitation and environmental education. Volunteer staff members provide care for injured and orphaned birds of prey and adult songbirds, with the ultimate
goal of returning them to the wild. Wild for Life community outreach presentations, which include nonreleasable ambassador birds, engage and educate the public about the importance of native wildlife and global conservation. WFL is state and federally licensed.

I’ve been lucky enough to partner with Wild for Life over the last five- plus years through my business. We both share a mission of saving our feathered friends. I’ve never known a more authentic, dedicated and passionate group of people working for their cause. I’m a huge advocate of their initiatives to rehabilitate wildlife and educate the public about conservation and environmental stewardship. I urge everyone that cares about wildlife and our local ecosystem to learn more about Wild for Life and consider donating to their organization.
