As Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation (AIWC) is funded entirely by donations, our wish list contains much-needed supplies that are vital to the care of Alberta’s injured or orphaned wildlife. Every gift gives these wildlife a chance to survive and thrive in the wild.

Donations can be dropped off at our facility from 9am – 5pm every day of the week. For questions or larger donations, please contact us.

Would you like to donate supplies, but can’t make it to our facility? Other ways to donate supplies include:

  • Sending supplies directly to our facility through our Amazon Wish List or other online retailers that deliver.
  • Gift cards: gas stations, grocery stores, Canadian Tire, Walmart, stationery stores (i.e. Staples), home improvement (i.e. RONA, Home Depot), etc. can be mailed to us.

High Priority items

  • Truck in new or gently used condition. This will be used to rescue wildlife and also collect branches and other large items for food and enrichment for our patients.

  • Side by side utility vehicle in new or gently used condition. This will be used to transport food for the animals and move items around the facility.
If you are able to donate either of these items, please get in touch with us at [email protected] or at 403-946-2361. Thank you for your support!
