The Busch Wildlife Sanctuary in a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which protects and restores native wildlife for the benefit of its unique animals, environment, and people. Our goal is to inspire and educate the community in leading local conservation and wildlife rescue, rehabilitation, and release efforts.
The Sanctuary’s wildlife hospital provides free comprehensive medical and rehabilitative care to almost 5,000 injured wild animals each year. Nearly 90% of the injuries treated at our wildlife hospital are directly related to man-made causes, which include collisions with automobiles, fishing line entanglement, electrocutions, illegal gunshots, poisonings, and attacks by dogs and cats. The ultimate goal of our wildlife rescue program is returning recovered animals to their natural habitats to once again become an integral part of our fragile environment.
The Sanctuary is open to the public for only a donation with regularly scheduled programs to educate young and old alike about nature, wildlife, and issues that affect our environment. Former patients of our wildlife hospital that have suffered injuries too severe to allow them to return to the wild are provided with a refuge in which to live, where they now serve as ambassadors to the animal kingdom. These animals offer the public a rare opportunity to learn from nature up-close, while creating a memorable message of respect for all living creatures and their habitats.
