In 2016 Wildlife Rescue treated almost 4,700 animals making it one of the busiest years on record. Staff at the hospital treated dozens of different species including more than 200 Northern flickers, 117 black-capped chickadees, 82 hummingbirds, 40 great blue herons, 13 trumpeter swans and five different species of hawk including rough-legged and sharp-shinned hawks. Most of our patients (86%) were birds, while 13% were mammals. We also treated a handful of amphibians and reptiles.
Since 1979, Wildlife Rescue has admitted more than 100,000 animals, making it one of the busiest wildlife rehabilitation centres in Canada.
