Alaqua Wildlife Rehabilitation Program Update

In our ongoing commitment to providing the utmost care and protection for the wildlife entrusted to us, Alaqua is embarking on a pivotal transition period.  Our wildlife facility is in the process of relocating to its permanent home on 50 acres of our 100-acre facility.  We are taking proactive steps to ensure the safety and well-being of the animals in our care, as well as the integrity of our rehabilitation efforts.

To facilitate a seamless move to our new facility, Alaqua will temporarily abbreviate the services offered by our WildlifeRehabilitation program. This decision is driven by our dedication to safeguarding the wildlife we serve.

Key Changes Effective Immediately:

  • Suspended Intake: In preparation for our move, we will be suspending the intake of new wildlife patients. This will enable us to focus our resources and attention on safely transitioning current inhabitants to the new facility. Full services will be reinstated in a timely manner.
  • Relocation of Animals Requiring Special Care: Understanding the unique needs of certain species, especially those requiring specialized care, we have preemptively coordinated with other reputable facilities to ensure these animalscontinue to receive the attention they need without interruption. This move is out of an abundance of caution, prioritizing the animals‘ well-being above all.

We are immensely grateful for your understanding, support, and patience during this transitional period. The safety and care of the wildlife at Alaqua have always been, and will continue to be, our top priority. We look forward to welcoming our wildlifefriends to the new facility soon.
