Mission Statement

Our Mission: To heal the sick and injured/orphaned animals brought to us and ready them for release back into our Urban Wilds. To educate people of all ages in the wonder and enjoyment of wildlife and nature and why it is so vital we protect it. To teach patience and compassion so that urban wildlife is viewed in a more positive light by everyone- not as pests, but as important co-habitators of our environment.


The Yggdrasil Urban Wildlife Rescue (YUWR) and Education Center is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization serving the San Francisco Bay Area in California since 2001. We are dedicated to the rehabilitation of orphaned and injured wildlife living in urban city centers and education of the public about how to live harmoniously with our cities’ wildlife.

  • When an orphaned wildlife mammal is found, we nurse these animals back to a healthy state where they are able to be released back into the wild.
  • Through education to children and adults alike, we try to raise awareness of these wild residents of our cities in the hope that a better co-habitation will lead to less injuries/orphans and more enjoyment of the urban wildlife with which we share our cities.
  • Through hotline referrals, we give advice on where to go to get help when you find an animal in need.

We are a 501c3 grassroots nonprofit organization and are 100% volunteer-run and donation-funded.

Yggdrasil is pronounced "ig-dra-sil" from the mythological stories of the "World Tree"
