NIWRC has made it to the semi finalists http://www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf17386 please vote. smile

Overview of their mission of how they'll help the wildlife in their care as wriitten on above link for their page.

Overview:The North Island Wildlife Recovery Association (NIWRA) was established in 1985 to operate a shelter for injured and orphaned wildlife for the purpose of rehabilitation and release of animals brought to the center.  The interim years have seen a growth in the center with greater and greater numbers of birds and animals being brought to the center. We have concentrated on public education to try and reduce these numbers. Because some of the animals brought to us are too badly injured to ever be completely rehabilitated and returned to the wild, they are kept here to live out their lives and their stories are used for public education as well.
  Over the years, because of the increase in intake of numbers of non-releasable animals and the costs required to care for them, the maintenance of our enclosures has become a major expense and there is much upgrading required to them to keep our on-site residents comfortable.
We also have a difficulty with above-ground water lines that have frozen on occasion, requiring a great deal of work to provide the resident bears and raptors with water for drinking purposes.  We desperately need to place these water lines underground the cost of which has been quoted to us at an enormous price. Our facility is basically run by our 52 volunteers with 1 resident wildlife manager and 1 assistant wildlife manger and part time office personnel - some of them volunteer. Funding for these upgrades and waterlines has been an issue for us for some time.  We are hoping to qualify for some assistance for these required upgrades for our resident animals.

It also appears that joining Facebook is a requirement.  As a non-FB person, I have not found a way I can vote.
