Projects > Northwest Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

Tucked near the woods on the Nooksack River in the small Western Washington town of Deming, the Northwest Wildlife Rehabilitation receives and treats hundreds of native wild animals every year. Run entirely by donation, the center operates under lead rehabilitator and lone staffer Stacy Wise. With a team of seasonal interns and volunteers year round, Wise and the people who dedicate their time and lives to the center help save the lives of native wildlife that have been injured, abandoned, are sick, or disoriented. These images are the culmination of several months spent in and around the center, on releases for success stories of animal patients brought in, even some of whom were raised by Wise and the volunteers and interns, to be released as thriving adults.
