Helping Indiana wildlife

Kathy Hershey, Utopia Wildlife Rehabilitators says, “using poison to kill rodents could spell disaster for other animals.” Unintentionally people are harming other animals such as hawks and owls,

Utopia Wildlife Rehabilitators is a wildlife health and nature education facility located in South Central Indiana. In addition to rehabilitating and releasing native wildlife, birds and birds of prey, they educate and inform the public about wildlife, and foster understanding and appreciation for nature.
They have an opportunity to acquire an adjoining property with a house and a barn which will help us expand. The house will serve as a wildlife hospital, and the barn will be a nature center. They currently release over 500 birds and animals a year, and educate approximately 10,000 people annually with their educational programs. Currently, educational programs are done off-site, and on their property, weather permitting. A nature center would provide a year-round opportunity for families and people of all ages to spend time learning about and appreciating our areas natural wonders. This facility would allow them to have veterinary interns, summer camps for children and adults, and permit more mentoring and volunteer opportunities for youth.
