PURPOSE OF THE EVENT
In 1990, over 400,000 gallons of crude oil spilled off the coast of HuntingtonBeach sickening over 4000 birds with oil. Sadly, only 15% of these birds surviveddespite treatment at a makeshift facility. Following the spill, we began takingsteps toward providing a permanent facility capable of responding to thewildlife injured in future toxic spills and other interactions with people. Eight years later, our efforts paid off when the Wetlands & Wildlife Care Center opened inMarch of 1998. Since then, we have cared for well over 100,000 birds andmammals. They have come in with oiled feathers or fur, fishing line and hooks,shot with arrows and bullets, hit by cars, or orphaned, just to name a few.
The cost of our operation is approximately $60,000 per month. Our administrativestaff and board of directors are supported by a compilation of trained wildlifetechnicians, certified volunteers, and veterinarians who come together as ateam to provide quality care for the animals that arrive through our doors daily.
The Wetlands & Wildlife Care Center is only able to stay open through generousdonations from the public.
