About Moraine Ridge Wildlife Rehabilitation Center
MRWRC was founded in 1997 by a group of wildlife rehabilitators and enthusiasts. Its primary mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and return orphaned and injured wildlife to the wild. In addition, the center provides educational opportunities for the community that promote informed and humane interaction with native wildlife. In 2014, MRWRC partnered with Humane Society Calumet Area, which allowed the center to substantially expand the scope of its mission and delivery of its services.
