HOW DOES BACK TO THE WILD HELP?
The year 2008 was a busy time for the center with over 2,500 injured animals rescued and 60% of them returned to the wild. This chart shows the statistics for 2008 as well as cumulative figures since Back To The Wild was started.
You can see a list of the species we treated during 1999 along with a count of how many individuals of each species. 1999 was a very big year for the BACK TO THE WILD center and here are the figures to show it.
