KEY WEST WILDLIFE CENTER
The Mission of The Key West Wildlife Center is to “Ensure the future of our diverse native wildlife by providing timely rescues and quality rehabilitation with the hope of release back to the wild.”
WHAT IS WILDLIFE REHABILITATION?
The goal of wildlife rehabilitation is to provide professional care to sick, injured, and orphaned wild animals so ultimately they can be returned to their natural habitat.
