Aark Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center
The work of the Aark is divided into three major areas – Rehabilitation, Education and Training; each with the common goal of fostering the care and understanding of wildlife. The Aark sets broken bones, treats illnesses, and provides food and shelter for birds and mammals that have been injured or have been orphaned and are too young to care for themselves. The goal is to return these creatures to their natural environment as quickly as possible, able to fend for themselves. Every effort is made to avoid interfering with the development of those natural characteristics that each wild creature requires to survive in the wild. Annually more than 5,000 birds and mammals find aid and shelter at the doors of the Aark.
