Our staff does not rehabilitate wildlife nor can we respond to incidents off site. Instead, keep your distance from the animal and contact a local rehabilitation facility.
Please refer to the following list of permitted wildlife rehabilitators sorted by county, provided by the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife.
Contact the Marine Mammal Stranding Center (MMSC) based in Brigantine, New Jersey. The Marine Mammal Stranding Center is the only organization in the State of New Jersey authorized to rescue and rehabilitate stranded marine mammals and sea turtles. They hold federal and state permits, which are required in order to work with these protected animals. Our biologists work closely with this team as first responders to any marine mammal or sea turtle strandings that occur on our property. For such cases, you can call the hotline or us. Call the hotline directly for any strandings in the State of New Jersey that aren't on our refuge.
Immediately report any deer displaying symptoms of CWD (accurately document the location of the animal, record GPS coordinates, if possible, take pictures if possible) either to Division of Fish and Wildlife’s Office of Fish and Wildlife Health and Forensics at 908- 735-6398, a regional Division law enforcement office, a Division Deer Biologist. One of the most important ways of stopping the spread of CWD is early detection, so your reports of potentially sick deer are critically important to NJ’s disease monitoring efforts.
