Our Vision: Preserving the legacy of wildlife.
Found alone with no mother in sight, this cub was at first monitored to ensure she was truly orphaned. After several hours with no mother appearing, the cub was rescued and transferred to AIWC for care.
Weighing in at just 3.6kg (less than 8 pounds!) when she first arrived, this cub flourished at our hospital. She was returned to the wild in October, after being fully assessed by veterinarians and fitted with a GPS collar. She had more than tripled in size, weighing an impressive 24.9kg (55lbs) at release.
In November, we received an update that she has gone into hibernation and we will be alerted in the spring when she wakes up.
As the demand for our services increase, so does the demand for funding to ensure we can operate. This Christmas season, please consider including AIWC in part of your Christmas giving. This will help ensure that injured and orphaned wildlife have a place to go today, when in need, and also in the future.
Thank you for your support of Alberta’s wildlife; as human and wildlife encounters rise, they need us now more than ever.
