Disabled animals that can no longer survive on their own in the wild get to find a new purpose. It's a second chance!


Becoming an Ambassador

All wildlife ambassadors at Back to the Wild are animals who have suffered tragic injuries. These injuries have left them permanently disabled and unable to survive on their own in the wild. While our goal is to always return these beautiful creatures back to their true homes, we are honored to give those who can never again be free a second chance at our center. We do not name our ambassadors as they belong to the wild, not to us. Their spirits can never truly be tamed. 

Barred Owl

This owl was rescued as a young owl. He had been hit by a car while learning to fly on his own and fend for himself. The impact caused this wonderful animal to lose vision in his right eye due to damage to his retina. Despite his injuries, he does a great job helping us teach thousands of people every year!
