Our Present

Wildlife in Crisis is the only clinic of its kind in Connecticut. The facility accepts over 5,000 wounded, ill and orphaned wild animals each year, with the goal of healing them and returning them to their natural habitat. In addition to wildlife care, WIC addresses the umbrella issue of habitat loss with the Wildlife in Crisis Land Trust and educational outreach.

Located in a secluded setting in Weston, CT, Wildlife in Crisis maintains a bustling wildlife clinic and numerous recovery cages for mammals, songbirds and birds of prey. Since 1988, WIC has hosted over 100 interns from throughout the United States and abroad. These staffers and our local volunteers help field 20,000 calls per year regarding wildlife issues and provide hands-on care for the over 5,000 injured, ill and orphaned wild animals brought to the clinic each year.

In wildness is the preservation of the world.
