Programs: The Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley cares for birds and mammals in distress at our center and at volunteers' homes. We train volunteers and interns through a combination of mentoring and topic-specific workshops. We cooperate with other wildlife organizations to provide wildlife the best possible care. Our educational outreach program increases public awareness of wildlife issues. Our volunteers and staff provide advice to concerned individuals during business hours and after hours through a team of on-call volunteers.

Mission:
The Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley provides high quality care and rehabilitation of injured, sick, and orphaned birds and mammals within Silicon Valley. Our education programs foster a positive coexistence between the general public and wildlife, and through all of our activities we encourage an interest in and concern for wildlife conservation issues. Through the dedication of approximately 150 volunteers, we care for nearly 5,000 birds and mammals from over one hundred species each year.
