You have the power to help Alabama’s wildlife.

The Alabama Wildlife Center is not a government agency and is supported mainly by individuals like you. Your support is vital to the continued success of this unique nonprofit rehabilitation and education center.

Along with food, housing, and medical care for our wild bird patients, your donation also provides:

  • Education Program tours and outreach events to teach children and adults alike how to become active supporters of wildlife conservation in their communities
  • Trained Animal Care Specialists to respond 13 hours daily, 365 days a year to Wildlife Help Line callers (almost 4,000 calls in 2009!)
  • Statewide Raptor Transport Network to mobilize drivers to relay injured birds of prey to AWC for treatment (about 400 transport calls in 2009, and in most cases, injured wildlife arrived the same day regardless of the distance from us!)
  • And so much more!

Donations are tax deductible. Your generous support today will help save the lives of hundreds of animals.

About The Wildlife Center

Our Mission
The Alabama Wildlife Center is Alabama’s oldest and largest wildlife rehabilitation facility, caring annually for almost 2,000 wild bird patients from more than 100 species. AWC is a nonprofit organization with a dual mission:
  • to provide medical and rehabilitative care for Alabama’s injured and orphaned native birds in order to permit their return to the wild, and
  • to educate people in order to heighten awareness and appreciation of Alabama’s native wildlife.
