So Many Ways To Help

The Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge is a nonprofit organization dedicated to wildlife rehabilitation and environmental education. The Refuge receives no tax dollars and depends upon private contributions, memberships, business partners, and grants to support our mission. There are several ways to support local wildlife and their habitats. The Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge offers you a chance to honor loved ones, promote your business and, at the same time, protect our area’s most important natural resources. That’s because every donation you make helps sustain the Refuges on-going programs and preserve much more of our natural legacy.

Whichever gift you choose, however much you choose to give, you can rest easy knowing that you will help continue advancing the rehabilitation, conservation, and education missions that the Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge has embraced since 1994. The Refuge hopes that they can count on you to help us sustain more and more of the Earth’s most remarkable creatures.
