Wildlife in Crisis

Wildlife in Crisis is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization, founded in 1989 to care for injured and orphaned wildlife. Our facility in Weston, Connecticut was donated to us by an anonymous benefactor in 1990, and in the years since we've received an average of 10,000 calls about wildlife every year.

At WIC, the emphasis is on emergency medical care and temporary housing for injured and orphaned animals—not on keeping releasable animals in cages for public display. We run a nurture center—not a "nature" center.

Our habitat protection, wildlife rehabilitation and environmental education programs share the parallel goal of protecting wildlife while improving the quality of life in our community.
