The Florida Wild Mammal Association, Inc. (FWMA) is a nonprofit 501c3 organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of injured, sick and orphaned animals with the goal of returning them to the wild. We are equally committed to public education about wildlife.
Building for the Future: A New Wildlife Hospital
Established in 1994, FWMA is a wildlife rehabilitation center open 24/7 every day of the year to accept injured and orphaned animals including native birds, mammals and reptiles. Over 20,000 animals have been rescued and treated here in 27 years of operation.
The wildlife hospital is now located on 6 acres in Wakulla County generously donated for use by FWMA. Animal intake has exceeded 1,000 animals for 5 years straight. The caseload reached 1,150 animals last year and demand has exceeded the capacity to handle so many animals. Our vision has always been to relocate the center onto land owned by FWMA to modernize the rehabilitation facility and better serve our wildlife patients. To begin the transition, we have acquired 40 acres of land and moved a mobile home onto the property for use as caretaker housing until the wildlife hospital can be built. The property is adjacent to national forest, enabling the direct release of woodland animals upon recovery and eliminating the need for transport to a suitable release site as we often must do now.
