For over 30 years Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre has been caring for injured and orphaned wildlife from all over Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario. Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre is a registered non-profit volunteer based organization operating under licence from Manitoba Conservation and Environment Canada. Our mandate is to receive and care for injured and orphaned wildlife for release back to the wild. We also provide and promote public education in wildlife preservation and conservation with our Education Ambassador program. We provide care to Manitoba's and Northwestern Ontario's injured and orphaned wildlife 365 days a year.
We were formed in 1984 by a group of environmentally concerned citizens as the Manitoba Wildlife Rehabilitation Organization (MWRO) - Manitoba's first wildlife rehabilitation organization. Our first centre was constructed in 1993 and transformed from a small organization running out of the back yards of our volunteers to a full-fledged organization hosting an administration building, wildlife hospital, and numerous cages and enclosures including aviaries, flight conditioning cages, a pool, and other enclosures. In 2003, we became known as Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre. We operate in a temporary leased premises just north of Ile des Chenes, Manitoba - only 8 minutes south of Winnipeg.
Exciting news! Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre is expanding! We have secured an 18 acre parcel of land where we will construct a permanent $2.5 million Hospital and Education Centre to care for injured and orphaned wildlife and educate the public. We will also be building a variety of enclosures for recovering wildlife. Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre operates strictly on donations and receives no government funding.
We have cared for over 35,000 injured and orphaned wildlife in our 30 years of service.
