For more than twenty years, the Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge’s daily operational goal has been the rehabilitation and release of orphaned and injured wildlife indigenous to Northwest Florida. The Refuge provides wildlife rescue services and environmental outreach to five counties in Northwest Florida; our staff is on duty 24-hours a day, seven days a week, to assist local and state agencies in managing wildlife. The ECWR works with local governments, private businesses and individuals to protect habitats and the wildlife that live there.
As a leader in conservation education for the Emerald Coast, we offer educational programs for law enforcement and interested members of the community. The Refuge also partners with public and private schools to educate our youth on the importance of conserving our native species.
As we head into the future, the Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge will continue to pursue the highest level of medical care, environmental education, and conservation efforts. Join us today as we take responsibility for the preservation of our precious lands and wildlife. Help us create a new tomorrow where all life is respected.
