Morro Bay WILD tours will be held on Saturday, October 12. These tours introduce attendees to Pacific Wildlife Care's unique mission and the inner workings of our Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Morro Bay with an exclusive virtual tour presentation by Virginia Flaherty followed by a walk-thru of the facility and grounds. Enjoy light refreshments and meet one of our wildlife ambassadors!
Tickets are $25 per person. Tour times are 10 am & 1:00 pm with only 16 tickets available at each tour. These spots will fill quickly, so don’t delay! We only do this a few times a year.
Each tour will last 2 hours which allows time before or after to shop; wine & dine or bird watch on the beach, the marina boardwalk, the harbor or at the rock in Morro Bay. Make a day of it or even a weekend! There is lots to do!
Best of all, 100% of the ticket price is tax deductible (if eligible, based on discussion with your tax advisor) and will be used to feed and medically treat wildlife in our care!
Pacific Wildlife Care serves communities from Paso Robles and San Simeon in the north to Nipomo and Oceano in the south and east to the Carrizo Plain, encompassing an area of 3,300 square miles and 100 miles of coastline. As the only organization permitted to rehabilitate birds, small mammals, and reptiles, we take in between 2,500 – 3,000 animals every year with the goal of releasing healthy back to the wild. We are open 365 days a year and maintain a telephone hotline (805-543-WILD) for the public to call with questions and to report injured, orphaned, sick and oil-impaired wildlife. We also engage audiences with over 100 presentations of our non-releasable wildlife ambassadors to schools, service groups and other organizations. Come meet us! See the amazing work we do to save wildlife in SLO County!!
Pacific Wildlife Care is funded primarily from the hearts of its volunteers, members and donors. We receive no operational funding from state, county, city or local government and their respective agencies—Animal Services, Police, Highway Patrol, Harbor Patrol, State Parks except from a limited number of grant opportunities that provide for event funding or specific program needs. In 2018, we received $9,800 from the County of SLO for internship stipends, and sponsorship of our 2nd Annual Central Coast Wildlife Festival and annual fundraiser, Soupabration!.
