Elaine Conners Center for Wildlife is proud to announce the completion of our education facility, the Butler Education Center. With construction of this new building, we are able to meet donors, host education workshops and train interns and volunteers without disturbing our patients that are in recovery in our rehab area. As we settle into our new Butler Center, we will be holding informative public programs. Stay tuned for more information about our new conference facility!
The Center has a great need for volunteers, especially during our busy summer season. If you are interested in learning more about wildlife rehabilitation or our volunteer opportunities, whatever the time of year, please contact us for more information.
DONATIONS (see above)
We do not receive state or federal funding and rely on our grants and memberships to care for our wild patients. Your donations help us to provide the care necessary for these injured and orphaned wild animals to have a second chance at life in the wild. Your support is critical for feed and grains, veterinary care, medical supplies, milk-replacers, caging and enclosures and so much more.
Members will receive our two newsletters a year, color patient pages, as well as a Christmas Open House.
Donations or requests for memberships may be sent to:
Elaine Conners Center for Wildlife

Are you looking for "that special gift"? You can give the gift of helping an injured or orphaned white-tailed fawn. For a special gift of $150, an individual, family or group can sponsor the care of a fawn at ECCW.
Your special gift will help to raise a fawn from mid-May until its' release in late summer or early fall. Because privacy is critical to all of the Center's recovering animals, ECCW is not open to visitors... but each person sponsoring the care of a fawn will receive the history of that animal and a full color 8x10 photo.

Each year, the lives of many wild animals are upset by people who mean only to help. These people take animals from the wild in a mistaken attempt to help them. In fact, these would-be-rescuers are leaving the parent animals to search in vain for their offspring and are harming the young animals' chances for a successful life, if they live to be released.
Most young wild mammals or birds that are found do not need human assistance and their parents are close by watching over them.
Watch the situation to see if the animal in question is injured or if you see the parents. If you have questions or concerns, please call a licensed wildlife rehabilitator in your area.
If the situation warrants that you collect a baby animal or bird, please read these guidelines first... >>CLICK HERE
ALWAYS WEAR GLOVES WHEN HANDLING ANY WILD ANIMAL
Many wild animals, including baby wildlife in the Spring and Summer are needlessly killed and tested for rabies, because people handle them without protection. For your safety and the life of the animal, always wear gloves when handling wildlife.
WILDLIFE REHABILITATION OPPORTUNITIES
Who will care for the wildlife of the future? New Hampshire and other states need more rehabilitators to care for injured and orphaned wildlife. At ECCW, we can help train you to become a licensed wildlife rehabilitator. Begin the journey by volunteering!
