Wildlife Rehabilitation

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.

Wildlife Emergencies?

Do you have an injured animal in need of care? Please visitor our Wildlife Emergencies page.


An injured or orphaned animal once admitted to the rehab center faces an unpredictable and challenging road to recovery.  The Yukon Wildlife Preserve does not permit visitation of animals admitted into the Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre. This is the best way to support the successful rehabilitation of an individual by limiting unnecessary stress. Instead, please consider supporting the animal’s recovery through providing our Veterinarian and Animal Care staff the means to get it back into the wild – Help us keep Yukon wild at heart! 

Help Us Keep Yukon
Wild At Heart

We care for Yukon’s injured and orphaned wildlife to give them a second chance at life. Your gift will help us give them the best possible veterinary care – and get them back on their feet or wings!
