The Wildlife Center-Camera Critters


A Small Gray Fox
Visit this site to learn about the work of The Wildlife Center in New Mexico and to see some great photos! They rehabilitate wild and wounded animals brought to them and also conduct educational programs. If we lived here year round this would be our primary volunteer place to work.


How We Operate

TWC is a non-profit organization, operating through the generosity of private and corporate donors and with the support of a few foundations and granting entities. TWC receives limited funding from the State of New Mexico (typically a grant that makes up no more than 2% of our budget). TWC employs a small staff of seven full and part-time employees. It would not function without the help of the 75+ volunteers who regularly dedicate their time, talent and resources to us. In addition to the on-site volunteers who do everything from education programs for schools to cleaning wildlife mews to feeding education animals, we have a network of transporters who bring animals to us from every corner of the state. It takes more than a village, it takes the entire state of New Mexico to keep wildlife and wild habitats part of the cultural mix.

  1. How reassuring that there is such an organization in their state. It must feel wonderful to heal an injured animal and then be able to release it to it's natural environment.

  4. What a happy place which makes life better for everyone. One of the most difficult messages to get across these days is that we're all related; in some sense, we are all "cousins," not only with the animals but with the plants as well. We need, I think, a new sense of what "commonwealth" means.

  7. Wild critters need all the help they can get when they collide with humans - sometimes literally.

  8. There are rehabilitation centres like this up here. That fox shot is quite distinctive, by the way.

  9. Nice! There is a similar rehabilitation service offered here by an organization called the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. Once a week, the local newspaper describes some of the animals treated there. Sometimes the list includes animals like squirrels. I get rehabbing alligators. But, squirrels? Really?
