Baby Season 2023 is officially here. Baby Season is our busiest time of the year and it lasts from March through September. Our animal hospital will receive up to 50 animals a day all in need of care and medical attention, many of whom need months of loving care and rehabilitation before returning to the wild. The 2023 Baby Season Fundraiser will help provide much needed items and funds to help all of our rescued wildlife.

Busch Wildlife Sanctuary was established in 1983 to care for sick, injured and orphaned wild animals, while promoting wildlife and habitat conservation, through a variety of community environmental outreach programs. Our goal through the 2023 Baby Season Fundraiser is to raise awareness and sustain the two-fold mission of wildlife rehabilitation and environmental education.

Want to help raise funds for baby wildlife? Create an online fundraiser and invite your friends to join the cause. It's easy to do.
