Appalachian Wildlife Refuge is a nonprofit that coordinates wildlife rehabilitation efforts in Western North Carolina by providing care for injured and orphaned wildlife, supporting the wildlife rehabilitation network, and offering conservation education to the community.
For decades, Western North Carolina’s home-based volunteer
wildlife rehabilitators have been overwhelmed and the
community has needed more resources along with a dedicated
place to bring wildlife in crisis.
In October of 2014, Appalachian Wildlife Refuge was
established by a team of volunteers with the depth of knowledge,
experience, and expertise to bring the wish of a wildlife
rehabilitation facility to life. With thoughtful planning, generous
support and the extensive commitment of volunteers, the
Appalachian Wild rehabilitation facility opened on July 6, 2018.
Appalachian Wild is keeping very busy providing rehabilitation to
wildlife in crisis, as well as engaging and educating the public
about native wildlife.
