Challenge

As development continues in Central Virginia, native wildlife is in need of a helping hand. All too often, wild animals are orphaned, injured, or displaced due to human activity: increased development destroys wildlife habitat, cars hit wildlife, pets hunt and capture wildlife, trees are cut down and nests of baby birds, squirrels, and raccoons are destroyed; sadly, the list goes on.

Solution

Rockfish Wildlife Sanctuary provides rehabilitative care to more than 800 wild animals annually at its modern facility in Nelson County, Virginia. Their staff and team of education ambassador animals help to educate residents of Central Virginia about the habitats and needs of native wildlife.

Long-Term Impact

By rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing orphaned and injured native wildlife, Rockfish Wildlife Sanctuary helps to maintain a healthy population of breeding wild animals and, thus, a balanced ecosystem. Through education of the local community, Rockfish Wildlife Sanctuary helps to ensure a vibrant and compassionate future for wild animals.
