We Need Your Help To Keep Helping Wildlife

For over 50 years we’ve been providing care for Yukon’s most vulnerable animals. We’ve given a home, and rehabilitated sick, injured or orphaned wildlife to give them a second chance at life. But with increasing demand and rising costs, we need your help to continue providing Yukon wildlife’s with exceptional care.

Our goal is to raise $60,000 this year. Whether through a one-time donation or monthly ongoing support, your support is critical to provide the necessary procedures, supplies and expertise to rehabilitate Yukon’s injured and orphaned wildlife.

Together, we can continue to keep Yukon wild.

A History of Helping Wildlife

In the 1970's Danny Nowlan started accepting injured and orphaned wildlife at the Yukon Game Farm. Nearly fifty years later, the Yukon Wildlife Preserve continues to care for Yukon's most vulnerable animals.

Today, a full-time vet, Dr. Maria Hallock, along with students and interns provide 24 hour care. Since it opened in 2012, hundreds of animals have passed through the doors of the Preserve's Wildlife Research and Rehabilitation Centre.

Success Stories

Humans are not the only ones who benefit from a visit to the Yukon Wildlife Preserve.
Golden Eagle

When a storm blew down a large pine with an eagle nest, this eagle suffered a broken leg. The Preserve’s veterinary staff pinned and cast the broken bone. The eagle learned to fly in our large aviary before we released it back into the wild.

Moose

Separated by dogs from her mother near birth, this moose calf was too weak to stand when she arrived. With months of round the clock parenting and care, she flourished – a rare thing for moose in human care. Today, she shares a 33 acre wetland habitat with two other moose at the Preserve.

Great Horned Owl

This Great Horned Owl collided with a car, denting the car and giving the owl a concussion so severe it couldn’t see. Under the care of Dr. Maria Hallock, the owl got the rest and food it needed for a  successful recovery. The driver and owl reunited one last time for the release outside Tagish, Yukon!

Lynx

A car hit this lynx outside Dawson City, giving her a concussion and laceration in her leg. A vet in Dawson gave her stitches but she needed a place to recover from her weak, parasite ridden state. 16 days later she made the trip back to her home outside Dawson, healthy and strong.
