Thank you for your support!
ECWR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We receive no federal, state, or county funding. We are able to help Florida's wildlife only due to our fundraising efforts and the generous donations and grants from the Gulf Coast community members and businesses, tourists, and other organizations. Thank you for helping us, so we can help them.

Rehabilitation is important and rewarding work, but like everything else, comes at a cost. It costs about $55.26 to hand raise an orphaned opossum during their 90 day stay in rehabilitation. We saw about 200 orphaned opossums in 2022 - that's over $11,000, not to mention the wide variety of other species and cases we treat!

Buy a Brick! Become part of ECWR's legacy.
In 2019, ECWR built our Navarre campus, where we provide critical rehabilitation care to sick, injured, and orphaned native Florida wildlife in our Medical Center, and environmental education programs to people of all ages in our Education Center! By purchasing a brick, which will be placed in the pathway that connects the education and medical center, you are helping us achieve our mission of education, conservation, and rehabilitation for the welfare of Florida's natural fauna. 4x8in. bricks (as seen above) are $75 and 8x8in. bricks are $150. Thank you for helping us, so we can help them. Become part of ECWR's legacy by clicking the button below.
