Woodlands Wildlife Refuge, one of our 2017 grant recipients, is recognized for its black bear rehabilitation program which began in 1995. As the only facility in the state of New Jersey licensed to rehabilitate venomous snakes and endangered bobcats, they have saved more than 15,000 animals and continue to care for nearly 1,000 native injured and orphaned animals each year. The documentary "Second Chance: The Story of Mike the Orphaned Bear Cub" was nominated for an Emmy and highlights the special story of Mike and Ike the bears, and the dedicated work done at Woodlands Wildlife Refuge.
