AWLA’s Wildlife Resource Center provides wildlife education, outreach, and emergency field response for wildlife in Arlington County, Virginia.

Injured, orphaned, and sick wildlife are brought to AWLA where they are assessed and transferred to licensed wildlife rehabbers for recovery and eventual release back to their native habitat. Each year, the Wildlife Resource Center responds to more than 3,000 calls for wildlife services, from orphaned baby squirrels to injured adult deer, stunned birds, orphaned raccoons, and so much more. 

The Wildlife Resource Center supports the needs of our wild neighbors by ensuring that our network of skilled rehabilitation partners have the life-saving supplies they need, subsidies for the skilled training they require, and a corps of available drivers to transport wildlife where it needs to go. This will ensure that rehabbers remain available, committed, and have what they need to fulfill their vital role in wildlife conservation.
