About the sanctuary
Located on 460 acres of natural habitat in Rosseau, Ontario, this is the only licensed wildlife rehabilitation centre in Ontario actively rehabilitating moose and one of the few rehabilitation centres equipped with an aquatic facility to house and care for semi-aquatic mammals, including beavers and otters.
Help orphaned and injured wild mammals and reintroduce them back into the wild. Work with a variety of species such as bobcats, foxes, otters, beavers, skunks, opossums, lynx, raccoons, coyotes, moose and black bears.
Ontario’s large open spaces, forest and wilderness tracks and endless lakes, rivers and shorelines are home to a host of magnificent wildlife species. Large mammals like mooses, black bears and wolves would be highlights for many.
There are hiking trails on the property. You may encounter native wildlife such as black bears, coyotes, deer, etc. We are in a remote area. The village of Rosseau is 6 km away. There is a general store, restaurant, library and a few small shops.
