The Wildlife Hospital focuses on a community need for care of mammals and raptors currently, also coordinating with the local wildlife rehabilitation community. The Hospital expects to see 100 patients this year, growing steadily each year to reach full capacity of 1,000 patients annually

The new Hospital includes:

  • A front reception area for intake and education
  • A treatment room for exams, treatments, and surgical procedures
  • An ICU for care and monitoring critical patients
  • Species specific recovery and care rooms where babies can be safe and fed.
  • A dedicated wildlife kitchen

Minimizing Stress

Considered in the hospital planning, procedures and workflow design, is a priority to minimize wildlife stressors and human interactions . With quiet zones, species separation, sound panels, and minimizing unnatural lighting and sounds, Think Wild seeks to minimize stress and prevent habituation to ensure successful release backĀ  into the wild.

Additional Considerations:

Wildlife Recovery and Conditioning Enclosures. For treated wildlife ready for recovery, well-constructed, expertly designed and predator proofed, safe enclosures will be strategically sited around the property – spacing different species in recovery appropriately at a distance from each other.

Wildlife Habitat at Think Wild. Working with local, collaborative partners, plans are underway to restore the vegetation of the four acre property to its natural beneficial state. Over a multi-year timeline, invasive species will be reduced and replaced with native grasses, soft-woods and other vegetation to bring the property to its native landscape – to benefit pollinators, songbirds, insects and more.
