WRI had recognized that man’s encroachment on wildlife habitats created a need that was not met by other agencies or organizations. Throughout the country, citizen demand for a resource which addresses human/ wildlife interface is steadily growing and wildlife rescue centers have been acknowledged to be a necessity to a growing community.
The goals of WRI are to:
1. Rehabilitate and release to the wild injured and/or orphaned wild animals.
2. Come to the aid of displaced wildlife and the concerned people who find them.
3. Disseminate scientifically correct information about the wildlife of New Mexico.
4. Educate the public about the necessity for the preservation of natural habitat for wildlife.
5. Work closely with agencies at the state and federal level.
