Together we have an extraordinary opportunity to be part of the bold new vision for animal care. The new Wildlife Hospital and Education Centre will redefine our relationship to wildlife in Manitoba.
Your support is helping to construct a permanent Wildlife Hospital and Education Centre on 18 acres of land, located just north of Île des Chênes. The hospital exceeds International standards for wildlife care and ensures the best treatment possible of wildlife in distress, so they can be rehabilitated and returned to the wild. The education centre will be a destination of choice for schools, will be open to the public to learn about wildlife and visitors will leave with a unique experience.
Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre has raised over $2.0 million already! Construction has begun and continues as funds are raised - we are not borrowing any money for this project! We rely on our generous sponsors - corporations, foundations and supporters like you - in attaining this goal. Help us achieve this goal to help save more wildlife!
Wildlife Hospital and Education Centre
A 9600 square ft. building is currently under construction to house the Wildlife Hospital and Education Centre. The building shell is fully constructed but we are now raising funds to complete the next big expenses - the electrical and mechanical system and the inside of the building.
The Wildlife Hospital and Education Centre will be energy efficient. The buildings are heated and cooled by geothermal with insulated concrete walls and R70 insulation in the ceiling.
The indoor overwintering waterfowl building shell is constructed but funds are being raised to finish the inside. An operations building just had the concrete pad poured with a generous donation of concrete. Numerous outdoor construction projects are required to be built, such as wildlife enclosures, flyways, an amphitheater and landscaping.
Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre has applied for many grants and they have helped fund items around the outdoor grounds that are home to a natural wetland along with an accessible dock, sidewalks and a parking pad. A fruit orchard was planted, thanks to grants, along with a prairie tall grass site that will be incorporated into educational programming that the centre will be able to provide onsite.
How can you help build the Wildlife Hospital and Education Centre?
There are many options from purchasing a personalized paving stone, bench, making a donation or purchasing a naming right. The naming rights are going fast, but we still have the Wildlife Hospital, Education Centre, overwintering waterfowl enclosure, the fruit orchard, tall grass prairie and a limited supply of enclosures left. Your support will go directly into the construction of the permanent home for Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre that will be able to save more wildlife in Manitoba, in addition to providing a place for you and your family to visit to learn more about wildlife.
