Support Us

Each year the demand for our services increases.

In 2018, AIWC:

  • Treated 1,066 wild animals and helped hundreds more by assisting members of the public with wildlife-related issues, educating Albertans about natural wildlife behaviours and how best to live alongside our wildlife; and
  • Answered more than 4,100 wildlife related calls, providing assistance and information to support the wellbeing, and, in some cases, the survival, of animals.
