About

We are a collaborative of wildlife specialists and trained volunteers, including people just like you, who have the expertise to assist in the rescue of thousands of birds, reptiles and mammals that are injured or orphaned every year.

We respond throughout Georgia to reports of injured or orphaned wildlife and we also respond to mutual aide calls during disasters as we did to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill that began with explosion in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010. GWRA volunteers worked for months with local, state and federal agencies to save threatened wildlife. ...See All
