Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre has launched a capital campaign to raise $2.5 million! An 18 acre parcel of land was secured on which to build a new, permanent wildlife hospital and education centre to rehabilitate injured, sick or orphaned wildlife, provide valuable wildlife education services to the community and engage volunteers in a rewarding experiences. There will also be a waterfowl overwintering enclosure, a variety of outdoor wildlife enclosures, raptor flyways, a natural wetland pond, a prairie tall grass site and a fruit orchard for wildlife and humans to enjoy!
Construction started in the fall of 2015 with the funds that had been raised at that time. As of May, 2016, the capital campaign has raised $1.6 million. This leaves $900,000 to raise to achieve the goal of the capital campaign!
The walls and roof of the two main buildings have been constructed. There still remains the interior to complete, including the mechanical and electrical, which are a big cost! Landscaping, wildlife enclosures, and the parking lot are a number of items yet to be completed. The goal of Wildlife Haven is to start to occupy part of the new space by the fall of 2016. Wildlife Haven will not be borrowing any money to complete the project, so is relying on the generous support of corporations, foundations and the general public in attaining this goal. Help us help wildlife in giving them a second chance of survival!
Our new Education Centre will be open to the public and will be a destination of choice for schools and the general public. Visitors will learn about wildlife, meet our wildlife ambassadors and leave with a unique experience.
