Each year the demand for our services grows. Since 1993, Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation (AIWC) has been a champion for the rehabilitation of injured and orphaned wildlife. An increased demand equals the need for more funds to support our programs, and on August 1st, 2020 we will launch our 2nd Annual fitness challenge fundraiser.
Workout for Wildlife (WOW!) will run from August 1st to 21st, 2020, encouraging registered participants to reach their individually set fitness goals and collect pledges for AIWC. WOW! is your chance to connect – to Alberta’s wildlife, to our natural environment, and to your own fitness goals!
In 2019, AIWC provided care to over 1,400 orphaned and injured wildlife patients, with an industry-leading success rate of 47%. Each year we admit over 150 different species in need of care, and answer hundreds of telephone calls from the public on our wildlife hotline. It is through the support of the community that we are able to provide these essential services.
