According to its website, for more than twenty years, the Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge’s daily operational goal has been the rehabilitation and release of orphaned and injured wildlife indigenous to Northwest Florida. The Refuge provides wildlife rescue services and environmental outreach to five counties in Northwest Florida. Staff are on duty 24-hours a day, seven days a week, to assist local and state agencies in managing wildlife. The ECWR works with local governments, private businesses and individuals to protect habitats and the wildlife that live there.
As a leader in conservation education for the Emerald Coast, the organization offers educational programs for law enforcement and interested members of the community. The Refuge also partners with public and private schools to educate our youth on the importance of conserving our native species.

Professionals and philanthropists willing to consider serving on the refuge’s “very active” board of directors are being sought. Contact (850) 650-1880 for more information.
