Our Vision: Preserving the legacy of wildlife.
With your support, Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation (AIWC) was able to care for 1,481 animals in need of care in 2019, a 28% increase from 2018!
After being found with a suspected injured wing, this rough-legged hawk was brought to AIWC for care. Upon examination, it was found that the bird was suffering from a fractured humerus bone in her right wing. Lead shot was also found on x-ray, at the carpal.
A pin was placed to support the fracture and promote proper healing, and she is undergoing cage rest to recover.
As the demand for our services increase, do does the demand for funding to ensure we can operate.
Thank you for your support of Alberta’s wildlife; as human and wildlife encounters rise, they need us now more than ever.
