What our founder began as a backyard passion in 1977 has grown into the oldest and largest wildlife rehabilitation clinic in the state.
The Alabama Wildlife Center is a leader in the rehabilitation of wild birds, and some of the methods developed here are now used in rehab facilities all over the world.
Our hallmarks are rehabilitation excellence and innovation in reuniting baby birds with their families. We also engage people of all ages in learning about birds and protecting Alabama’s native wildlife.
The Alabama Wildlife Center is a nonprofit organization supported by approximately 1,000 dues-paying members as well as individual donors, local businesses, and several foundations. Our vibrant community includes roughly 300 volunteers from all walks of life and more than 1,400 bird enthusiasts of all ages who find us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, and Google+ to follow the touching and inspiring stories of our new patient rescues, reunites, and releases.
We invite you to join us as part of the AWC community. Become a member, attend education events and visit our facility to view our wild bird patients and learn more about our unique rehabilitation methods. As an AWC member, you’ll help in our work to preserve our natural heritage and make Alabama a better place for wildlife and for people.
Now, more than ever, wildlife needs a champion. You can be a champion to wildlife.
