WE STRIVE TO UPHOLD THE SPIRIT OF CONSERVATION

The American identity has long been linked with its wildlife and landscapes. Virginia has been one of the major keepers of this national identity. After all it is the home of the bald eagle, the symbol of America. While industrialization and the changing nature of our economic activities have changed our environment before we realized, we believe it is not too late to turn the tide.

Virginians today are quite vocal about bringing nature back. In fact, since climate change has become an issue, a public poll in the state has revealed that the majority of Virginians want the state to craft plans that cut carbon emissions, and encourage clean energy and efficiency. This is encouraging news for educators like us, because it gives us pliable clay to mold, so to speak.

WILDLIFE CENTERS

Organizations across the state are working to diagnose the threats faced by Virginia’s wildlife, conserve their habitat, conduct research, educate the public, rehabilitate orphaned, injured or ill animals and protect vulnerable species. This list takes a look at some of the top wildlife centers in the state, where you can turn to for help and advice regarding rescued, displaced or injured animals.
