It is with heavy hearts we announce the closure of Ellicott Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. We have exhausted resources following the domino effect of recent closures of other high-volume Colorado wildlife rehab facilities. In 2016, EWRC cared for the most wildlife ever in our history and drained our finances. We are not able to recover from that.
Wildlife currently being cared for at EWRC will complete their rehab here. Our foster and teaching birds will be placed at other facilities over the next several weeks. We have enough funding to cover operations through the end of June 2017. We’re no longer soliciting or accepting donations.
For nearly 17 years, EWRC has served the Pikes Peak region and the state of Colorado by rescuing and saving the lives of thousands of animals and releasing them healthy to their native environment. We’ve offered wildlife education and outreach to tens of thousands of people. We’ve provided tens of thousands of hours in internship, youth, and volunteer opportunities. We’ve accomplished this only with the help of you, our loyal supporters.
Thank you for believing in and supporting the work we’ve done through the past many years. We couldn’t have done it without you.
