CHALFONT, Pennsylvania (WPVI) — The AARK Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center has been in operation since 1979.
Most recently, in 2008, they relocated to Chalfont which provided an opportunity for expansion to offset their massive animal flow.
AARK is dedicated to the rehabilitation and care of orphaned native wildlife.
Once they see that an animal is fit, they transport it to special areas for release.
In some cases, it is found that animals cannot be released, leaving them in the care of the many volunteers at the facility. These animals will spend the rest of their lives with AARK while serving a very important purpose.
They will act as educational tools to teach visitors how to better interact with the environment and the animals that live in it.
Executive Director Leah Stallings says they will learn how to leave the smallest possible footprint when interacting with the wild.
Leah says they couldn’t work without the nearly 1,000 volunteers.
