“When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.”

–Aldo Leopold

As more and more residents of Mendocino County come to love and respect the wildlife with whom we share this beautiful rural landscape, many wish to become actively involved in protecting our wild animal friends, but there has been no organization dedicated to this purpose in the County; that is, until now.

Here at Mendocino Wildlife Association, we are a non-profit organization composed of volunteers from all walks of life dedicated to the protection of wildlife and all aspects of the environment that are vital to their existence.

Our goal is to help care for wild animals and their habitat through public education in cohabitation with wildlife, use of non-lethal wildlife management practices, and facilitation of wildlife rescue and rehabilitation. We work with other like-minded non-profit organizations as well as other volunteers with a genuine concern for wildlife and the environment.

We are a relatively new organization and are actively seeking more volunteers to join us in our quest to help preserve the environment and protect our precious wildlife. If you believe that wildlife are a vital part of your existence, we invite you to join us – volunteer your time, talent, and effort into this critical work and be part of the change that will preserve our wildlife heritage for all generations to come.

PDF on Non-target Victims of Rodenticides in California

Non-target animals are dying from anticoagulant rodenticides in California.It is rare that wild animal victims are recovered and even rarer that necropsies (postmortem exams) or laboratory tests are performed. Occasionally, veterinarians contact a poison control hotline to aid treatment but there is no central recordkeeping of pet poisoning. Therefore reported cases represent the tip of the iceberg.
