Challenge

Wisconsin is home to an amazing wealth and variety of natural creatures, from the majestic great horned owl to the petite cottontail. Each year, many of these wild animals will confront misfortune, injured by a vehicle or perhaps orphaned by someone's pet. Some of these injured and orphaned creatures will be lucky enough to be found by compassionate people and brought to Fellow Mortals Wildlife Hospital, where they will be cared for with the hope of their eventual release back into the wild.

Solution

Fellow Mortals is more than a place. It is a living philosophy based on the belief that encouraging compassion in humans toward all life brings out the finest aspects of our humanity. Fellow Mortals provides excellent medical care to injured and orphaned wild animals entrusted to the hospital by the public. Fellow Mortals continues to advance treatment for the most critically injured and compromised animals admitted for care, demonstrated by a continued high rate of recovery and release back to the wild. Fellow Mortals also attempts to limit the number of animals admitted for care each year by offering public education to prevent unnecessary injury and orphaning, thereby reducing the total number of animals admitted. Through the hospital's Wildlife Care Internship Program, Fellow Mortals provides training opportunities for young professionals entering wildlife-related fields.
Fellow Mortals is a professional wildlife hospital that cares for injured and orphaned wild animals brought to the hospital by compassionate members of the community. Treated animals include songbirds, waterfowl, hawks, eagles, owls, rabbits, red and grey squirrels, opossum, woodchucks, beaver, and many other species. More than 40,000 wild animals of more than 100 species have received care since 1985, with the majority successfully returned to the wild

Long-Term Impact

Fellow Mortals is more than a place; it is a living philosophy based on the belief that encouraging compassion in humans toward all life brings out the finest aspects of our humanity. Fellow Mortals provides an irreplaceable service to wildlife, as well as the opportunity to educate and inspire people in our communities how to live harmoniously with wildlife in their backyards. Fellow Mortals strives to continue to reduce the numbers of animals admitted through community outreach and education.
