Peace River Wildlife Center

Saves: 4
Check-ins: 2
A small, but well-kept refuge rescues and rehabs animals from every group. Injured and orphaned birds, mammals, and reptiles are given medical care before they are hopefully released back into the wild. PRWC was started in 1982 by Dr. Jerry Gingerich, a veterinarian who was also president of his local Audobon Chapter. Since its founding the nonprofit organization has treated over 50,000 animals. Currently, they treat more than 2,500 animals per year - with the numbers increasing. All of the permanent residents are available for viewing by the public in attractive, spacious aviaries and habitats, suggestive of their native environments. Among the animals available for viewing are bald eagles, hawks, tortoises, turtles, opossums, and rabbits. (Submitted by Ruth Hallam)
