Join Our Board!

The Wildlife Rescue Coalition of Northeast Florida is a 501(C) 3 educating the public since 2003. Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate orphaned, injured, and displaced native wildlife in Northeast Florida, while educating children and the public about the benefits of living in harmony with nature. We then return the animals to their natural habitats where they can thrive and continue the circle of life.
