I cannot say enough about this group of dedicated volunteers who are just so passionate about caring for the wildlife that surrounds us. I've brought a few animals to them and I really like that they will care for and release these animals even if they are prey for other animals in their care. For instance if you found an injured mouse they'd help it and release it and not just feed it to a Hawk or Owl in their care.

I have brought a few animals to the center for rehabilitation and I have also called them and asked for advice when I have seen an animal that I believed needed help. They are always quick to respond and very helpful.

The thing I like best is that if I bring in a prey creature, like a
mouse, they won't feed it to an owl at the center. They will rehabilitate it and release it. It might eventually be taken by a predator in the wild, but the animal is assisted and released despite being so common and so low on the food chain.

The Great!

I brought an injured pigeon for rehabilitation and they helped me rescue a 7 day old raccoon and a snapping turtle.

My class enjoyed several educational programs led by the Center for Wildlife this past year. The programs were enriching for both staff and students alike with a variety of activities including discussion and hands on analysis by students. We look forward to working with the Center for years to come.

As a progressive educator, it can be difficult to find like minded and like practiced teachers out there. In their educational programs, The Center for Wildlife does not try to tell students what to think nor give them answers. Instead, they provide real, hands-on experiences for students with the animals that allows the students to think and construct their own understanding. With the bat program, for example, this knowledge can also be followed by action on the teacher and students part. It is exciting to know that the Center for Wildlife is doing such an educational service for the community.

As my husband and I were driving through our neighborhood one Sunday afternoon last May, we had to stop to allow a little baby groundhog struggling to cross the road safely. We knew this wasn't normal. Our families of groundhogs have lived in our yard ever since we moved in years ago. We knew that the mama would never allow her babies to wander away. Never. In fact, she nurtures them pretty much all through the summer until they are grown and can live on their own.
We knew this little baby had lost its mom. We went home to get a box and drove back to where the little groundhog was sitting in a neighbor’s yard. A man who lives in the house came out and said that the baby had been around for 2-3 days. So my husband and I placed him in the box and took him to our house. We placed clover and grass inside the box, as well as some cloths. We wondered if our mama groundhog would take care of the little orphan. However, information that we found on the internet said that a mother groundhog would not welcome an outsider.
I had no idea what to do. As my husband continued to research the web for information, he suggested that I call The Center for Wildlife in Cape Neddick - approximately 40 miles away. At least they might be able to give me some advice. Well, they gave more than advice. They asked if we would be willing to drive him to the Center where one of their staff members would be delighted to take him in. (They told me that groundhogs were her favorite!) We of course agreed.
When we arrived, the staff quickly took the baby groundhog and the box to a back room where they had prepared a pen for him. They gave us an "admission ticket" with a number to reference should we want to call and check in on him.
I did call to follow up and spoke with the woman who was caring for him. She said that another baby groundhog was brought to the Center, which was good for both of them. She adores groundhogs and took extra special care of them. I continued to email her throughout the next few weeks and she always replied with a detailed account of how the groundhogs were doing – which was amazingly well! She cared for them until they were grown and ready to be released. My husband and I are grateful to have such a wonderful place nearby. I let others know about the Center for Wildlife whenever I have the opportunity. They forever have my support!

Two years ago I brought a wounded chickadee to the Wildlife Center in Cape Neddick Maine. I was very impressed with their knowledge, kindness and expressions of gratitude for bringing the bird to them. Since then I have been to several of the Center's Open Houses and have learned much.

The Center for Wildlife is an excellent facility, and the only one like it in the area. I brought a wild animal to them once, and another time someone came to my house on short notice to get an animal that needed their help. The first time I used their service I searched online, and found that most other places like the CFW only accept certain animals. Their ability to accommodate several different types of animals, and their goal to release the animals back into the wild where they belong make this an invaluable asset to York County. Without CFW there would be many animals suffering and unqualified people attempting to care for them. It is so important that CFW keep running, and that people in the area donate to support them.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

two ways-when I brought an animal needing help to the organization, and when someone from CFW came to my house to pick another animal up.

Honestly can't think of much...I wish they had more funding so they could have even extended services (although they do excellent as it is!)

CFW is performing an invaluable service for the birds and animals of ME with no government funding. For this I will do anything I can for them.
they accept volunteer time and donations of bags of acorns to paper towels plus the money recieved is so well used I only wish I could do more.
Hardly a soring goes by that I don't take them a baby bird and I am so grateful they are there.

The CFW provides a learning experience like no other. Every trip to the Center produces a personal connection with the animals which nurtures curiosity, understanding, and compassion for the wild around us. Every visit leaves me in awe of the natural world and inspired to help protect it better. The CFW is an incredible place staffed by great people doing amazing things for all who share this planet.

Give it more funding! They do amazing things with very little. I can't imagine what they could do with more funding.

We work with the Center For Wildlife year round. They bring their rehabilitated wildlife to our site to provide education programs. The programs are wonderfully popular with the live animals and then visitors are able to explore those animals habitats on our trail system. We are beginning a new K-2 program this week in collaboration with CFW that does just that: view the live animals, then explore their habitats. Our partnership with Center for Wildlife had added another dimension to our programs.

Provide more funding so they can increase their education programs with an emphasis on habitat stewardship in communities.

I brought CFW three baby squirrels whose mother had been killed. They took them in and one of their wonderful volunteers cared for them. CFW is such a wonderful organization. They are truly concerned about the wellbeing of the animals and most importantly provide all the care and attention they need in order to be returned to the wild where they belong. They also share their knowledge with the public with open houses, animal ambassadors and through the web (website, Facebook, etc). They are always trying to engage the community in activities and fundraisers to help them continue their mission of providing a safe, nurturing environment for the thousands of birds, animals and reptiles that need their assistance. Keep up the great work!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeking assistance for orphaned squrriels (at no cost to me) and by attending their annual open house to learn about all they do at the CFW.

no recommendations at this time.
