The St. Francis Wildlife
Community Conservation Partnership Program

 
Please consider joining these local businesses that have become our
Community Conservation Partners.

In 1970, St. Francis Wildlife began as a small backyard operation in Tallahassee, where people brought a few hundred wild birds and animals each year.

In 1990, St. Francis Wildlife rescued and cared for 1,520 wild animals. In 2000, that number jumped 42% to 2,588 wild animals who needed our help. During the same years, Leon County's population increased by 20%, and by 2010 residents are expected to grow by another 14%. Last year, St. Francis Wildlife rescued more than 3,000 animals.

Shrinking natural habitats, increased confrontations with humans, vehicles and pets and St. Francis Wildlife's good reputation has resulted in a steep increase in the number of calls we receive about wildlife requiring our services.

Today, with a 3,600 square foot wildlife hospital and more than 40 outside enclosures on our 35 acre wildlife refuge in Gadsden County, St. Francis Wildlife is an innovative and widely-respected wildlife rehabilitation and education center that has earned our community's gratitude and trust.
 
Although we receive some funding from local government each year, St. Francis Wildlife depends mostly on donations of funds and time from concerned individuals and businesses.
