Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation (AIWC)

This animal rescue organization is based in Madden, Alberta. Their patients include “native injured and orphaned wildlife, ranging in size from hummingbirds to baby moose. 95% of their patients are injured or orphaned due to human activities. They are often orphaned by needless ‘rescuing’ of babies who should have been left where they were. They may be hit by cars, electrocuted on power lines, tangled up in barbed wire fences and fishing lines, injured by pet cats and dogs, or poisoned. In 2005, they treated 1877 patients, a new record, and they expect this number to grow yearly.”
