Squirrels: Wild at Heart "Species Spotlight"

As a non profit organization (registered charity: 857767206RR0001), Wild at Heart depends on the generosity of our community to continue our mission to professionally treat wildlife and educate about human-wildlife interactions. Your support helps us to treat over 900 wild animals annually by purchasing specialized formula, nutrient-rich diets, quality medical supplies, new equipment, and much more. Without you, Wild at Heart would not be here today. Thank you for your continued support!

Upcoming Initiatives

Wild at Heart Wildlife Refuge Centre is now looking for interns from August – December 2017. Volunteer internships are 40-50 hours per week, for a minimum of two months at a time. Limited, free on-site accommodations are available upon request.

Learn more about the position here.

Anytime you eat at the Taphouse Northern Grill + Pub (1500 Regent Street) or Boston Pizza (120 Donna Drive), be sure to write “Wild at Heart” on the bottom of your receipt. When you drop it off in the receipt box by the front, each restaurant will donate 10% of the bill to Wild at Heart. If you can’t find the box, use the terminology “fundraising or team program”, or leave your receipts with a manager.

Please join Darren Kleven, The Natural Voice Choice, for a memorable afternoon on Saturday, September 16th from 2-4:30pm as he presents a talk entitled “3 Days of the Wolf”. Darren and some very special guests will illuminate the world of the Wolf; the trials and tribulations current and past that wolves have encountered, as well as triumphs in understanding the critical role a top predator plays in the environment.

Darren will share the very intimate, deeply moving close encounter that he and his wife had with a wolf in the forest north of Hanmer in Valley East via multi media, photos, film, and music. He will also acknowledge and speak, humbly, to the significance that Wolf plays in the pantheon of spiritual totems honoured by Indigenous people, himself included.
