Pelican Harbor Seabird Station is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife, with the goal of releasing healthy individuals back into their natural environment.
As our population continues to grow, so do our interactions with wildlife. X% of injuries treated at PHSS are a direct result of human-related activities, including vehicle collisions, cat attacks, hook and line injuries, and window strikes.
Thanks to the collaborative rescue efforts of trained volunteers, good samaritans, and government(?) partners, these defenseless animals are brought to PHSS for a second chance at life.
Upon arrival, each animal receives a thorough examination by our staff of veterinarians and trained rehabilitators. PHSS is a full-service wildlife hospital, routinely performing advanced treatments such as fracture repair, trauma response, x-rays, and X.
The average cost of care per patient is $538*, and includes examinations, treatments, diets, medication, and husbandry. *Cost of Care = Wildlife Clinic Expenses / # of Patients Released*
When a rehabilitated animal is released, it has the opportunity to reproduce, contributing to the overall health and genetic diversity of the population.
PHSS has released over X animals to date, helping to offset the impact of human activities and maintain the fragile balance of our urban ecosystem.
