What We Do
Founded in 1985, the North Island Wildlife Recovery Association (NIWRA) is a non-profit, world-class rehabilitation facility situated on 8 acres of immaculately manicured grounds, caring for animals with all types of needs, including birds with broken wings, orphaned black bears, electrocuted eagles and much more!

NIWRA’s main goals are to:
Reintroduce as many animals back to the wild as possible.
Educate the public about wildlife and environmental issues.

We are able to offer the most current wildlife care practices from rescue to release thanks to:
