Animals (mammals, birds and reptiles) that have been orphaned, displaced or injured are brought to the center. Presently, their annual admissions tally is roughly 2,000; this number has steadily increased every year. Most of the center’s ‘patients’ are rehabilitated and later released back to their natural habitat.
For those animals whose injuries are too extensive, the PRWC becomes their permanent home. At present, they have approximately 125 residents.
The center is well worth visiting, but this is not a full day out. It is more a case of dropping by if you are passing.
The pelicans are fed daily at 2.30pm, so you might want to time your visit with that (please phone ahead to check)
