TCWH is a private, not for profit corporation dedicated to the improvement of South Florida's natural environment. Major objectives are the rehabilitation and return to the wild of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife, as well as environmental education programs directed toward the public.
Founded in 1974,TCWH operates a comprehensive medical and rehabilitative facility for the care of wild animals. Our clinic accepts literally thousands of wild patients each year, providing treatment for animals as diverse as bobcats, eagles, alligators, and songbirds. More than 10 percent of the animals treated belonged to Threatened or Endangered species. Upon completion of their rehabilitation, these animals are returned to suitable wild habitats.Our staff includes both trained professionals and dedicated volunteers from all walks of life. In addition to our rehabilitative services, we provide public education in a number of ways. Environmental Educators bring Outreach Programs featuring live animals to a variety of school and adult groups, and conduct guided interperative tours through many natural habitats in South Florida. Our educational efforts are designed to increase public knowledge and appreciation of the unique and fascinating wild places and wild animals found here. Other community services are also available through TCWH. We are involved with the management of urban wildlife, offering both professional services and advice to homeowners as well as businesses who encounter wild animals in their daily lives. Our staff answers about 100 phone calls a day, many of which are requests for information about wildlife. TCWH is a community resource. Educators and homeowners alike all benefit from our various programs and services. Memberships in TCWH are the only way we can continue these efforts.
