IWRC is education and resources
for wildlife conservation worldwide.

There are many ways to "preserve and protect wildlife and habitat." The founders of IWRC chose to preserve and protect through the support of wildlife rehabilitation.

Wildlife rehabilitation is the act of providing temporary care for injured, sick or orphaned wildlife with the goal of releasing them back into the wild. By providing unique insights into issues affecting wildlife populations, species and habitats, wildlife rehabilitation contributes to wildlife conservation and protection worldwide.

Redwood Valley Outdoor Education Project

In the face of accelerating environmental change, and with a growing number of children spending much of their time indoors and “connected to” various electronic devices, it is becoming more and more important for children to have the opportunity to learn about their relationship to and their place in the natural world. Every year, hundreds of Ukiah Unified School District students participate in the Redwood Valley Outdoor Education Program and begin to build a better understanding of that essential connection.
