Co-Existing with Wildlife
With a population of over 10 million and an area of over 4700 square miles, Los Angeles is a densely packed metropolis. As people flock to the area for its beautiful beaches, phenomenal weather and scenic landscapes, they come in greater and greater contact with animals. Whether it’s accidentally knocking down a bird’s nest, or a piece of trash ingested by a sea lion, the human encroachment in Southern California is having a deleterious effect on its wildlife.
While some animal adaptation occurs, at CWC our goal is to keep native fauna wild by rehabilitating animals as quickly as possible and releasing them back into their native territory.
We accept animals 365 days a year. Whether directly from the public, through our relationships with local animal care centers or from local vets, animals in need know that they can come to CWC for care. We receive over 10,000 calls a year from the public that range from raccoons in the attic, a fox struck by a car or an orphaned duckling. Our staff and volunteers provide vital information that is key in saving the animals lives.
