About the Center for Wildlife
 
The Center for Wildlife is nestled at the base of Mount Agamenticus, in Cape Neddick, Maine, where for 33 years their facility has treated over 50,000 injured and orphaned wild animals and presented programming to thousands of community members annually.  
 
Center for Wildlife proudly serves the New England region, typically managing 2,000 patients each year (native wildlife injured because of vehicle collisions, domestic pets, pollution, fishing lines, oil spills, and other human-related causes), representing more than 190 species of birds, reptiles, and mammals. The clinic is run out of a modest 1,200 square foot building and a campus of over 45 outdoor enclosures, all of which can be filled with patients during the peak season of April – October. The goal of their wildlife clinic is to medically treat and provide rehabilitation to injured wild animals so that they can be released back to the wild where they belong.
