Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

I had the fantastic opportunity to photograph some of the awesome ambassadors for the Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre this past week. It was a great chance to mingle and discuss the various things that they do, and get to know more about the important wildlife in our province.

The natural world as a whole, and in particular the flora and fauna of Manitoba is near and dear to my heart, which my regular readers probably can tell. Not many things bring me as much joy as being out in the wilderness photographing nature. This is why I jumped at the chance to donate to the PWRC. To do what I love, and help out a great organization.

The Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is a registered charity who's aim is to treat and rehabilitate injured and orphaned wildlife. The PWRC also runs outreach programs, in order to educate the public about important wildlife issues currently affecting the local and global environment. Their programs compliment the school curriculum and can be presented at your school, community centre or outdoor event.

You can also arrange for a special visit from one or more of their non-releasable ambassadors! These are animals who would no longer be able to survive in the wild, or who have been influenced and affected behaviourally by humans, and would present a threat to their wild counterparts, or to humans if they were to be released into the wild. This is why it is extremely important to learn about what to do if you find orphaned or injured wildlife BEFORE you interfere with it.

If you have any questions, or would like to donate/volunteer please contact the PWRC:
