The Wetlands & Widlife Care Center
of Orange County
Generl Information
Southern California is home to more than 5 million people and as growth continues, this large concentration strains the earth for natural resources such as water and open wildlife habitat.
Another side effect of the massive urban growth is the effect on native wildlife. This includes destruction of native habitats and resultant reverse impact to animals, much of this is caused by humans. Major efforts are being made to preserve what little wildlife habitat remains, but there has been insufficient effort to care for wild animals that are sick, injured, or orphaned. Most wildlife care and rehabilitation is done by volunteers in their own homes and backyards.
About Us:
The Wetlands and Widlfie Care Center of Orange County is a non-profit facility established to provide care for these animals and to educate the general public about wildife and their habitat.
The center is a non-government facility operated by the Huntington Beach Wetlands Conservancy and the Alliance for Wildlife. It is staffed by licensed veterinarians, and volunteers.
Located at 21900 Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach, California, the Center is capable of caring for more than 500 animals at one time. The public is invited to visit the information center and non-releasable aninal section, and the view examples of native vegetation located throughout the complex. The hospital and rehabilitation areas are closed to the general public. Tours may be arranged for wildlife care professionals and groups.
