Here at the Peace River Wildlife center they help over 2,000 animals yearly. Injured or sick wildlife is brought to the park, where they are helped heal and recuperate. The park has a 83% positive outcome of animals brought in.
The animals needs are met individually, some of the animals require physical therapy and lots of care and others just rest and sleep. After animals leave the park they are either sent to another area for more rehabilitation or released into the wild.
The park helps all sorts of animals. They have had falcons, turtles, squirrels, minks and ferrets, otters, pelicans, storks, owls and many others. The park is a non profit organization and they don't have any government funding. They are backed by volunteers and donations solely.
Take time out of your visit to be educated and learn about how you can help prevent harming wildlife and what to do when an animal is injured. How to correctly dispose of garbage and give back.
