The BC SPCA's Wildlife Welfare team works to strategically plan and oversee operations at BC's second largest wildlife rehabilitation centre, which cares for almost 2,500 injured and orphaned wild animals annually. Visit the Wild ARC website to learn more about this facility. This team also helps to mitigate urban wildlife conflicts through public education and by advising other agencies to implement humane urban wildlife management programs.
We are committed to protecting wildlife affected by pollution-damage, by participating in provincial response planning and training as a member of the Oiled Wildlife Trust and Oiled Wildlife Society of B.C. We also work to raise the standards of wild animal care and develop a provincial accreditation program with government agencies and the Wildlife Rehabilitation Network of B.C. Our ongoing advocacy work is dedicated to improving wildlife legislation to regulate private exotic wildlife ownership and find sanctuary for abandoned and neglected exotic animals.
