Who We Are


Wellington Conservation Center is home to all unwanted, abandoned and injured animals. We care for orphaned birds, mammals and specialize in conservation of South American exotics who are endangered from habitat loss and poaching. 

Mission and History

At the Center, we treat, rehabilitate and/or return to the wild any animal(s) that we can.  After caring for large mammals in Chicago for 20 years, our Florida location is more suited to our wildlife program.  We also relocate and place large mammals such as bears and exotic cats to other specialized locations throughout the country. 

We are a conservation center supported from grants, trusts and local sponsors. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Wellington, Florida, and are licensed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Department. All donations are 100% tax deductible and directly aid in the caring of the animals.
