One Health

Sunday River Wildlife staff are Reuniting Specialists! The first choice with any juvenile wildlife is to reunite with parents or members of the same species. While we do our best to help with their development, young patients are always better off with their parents. Check our Found An  Animal Page to learn more....

Sunday River is looking for Release Sites in a variety of habitats for Patients that are ready to be wild and free. This is also a great way to help with Wildlife Monitoring and Citizen  Science.

We are also actively looking for a rural 20 acre lot on which to expand our operations.
