 Ali Crumpacker, director of the Fund For Animals Wildlife Center in Ramona will speak to us about the Center which was founded in 1984, is one of the animal care centers in the country operated by the Humane Society of the United States. The facility provides year-round medical and rehabilitative care to ill, injured or orphaned predatory species of wildlife including eagles, raptors, bobcats, cougars and coyotes with the goal of releasing them back into the wild. The FFA Wildlife Center rehabilitates nearly 500 animals each year. FFA Wildlife Center staff and volunteers also maintain the center’s 75 resident animals, many of whom were used by people to turn profits for entertainment in the exotic pet trade. Because these animals were born in captivity and/or raised by humans, these resident animals could not be returned to the wild and, therefore, must live in sanctuary at the center.
