Come Spend The Evening With Critter Care Wildlife Society To Celebrate Their 20th Anniversary!

Critter Care Wildlife Society is the result of the hard work Gail Martin has put in into saving BC critters in the last 30 years. She first started caring for injured raccoons- which eventually led to assisting all BC native injured mammals including black bear cubs. Gail has worked tirelessly for the last thirty years and is an avid conservationist and knowledgeable rehabilitator. Critter Care Wildlife Society is the culmination of her lifetime commitment to the preservation of all living things. The Society has dedicated the last 20 years to saving mammals throughout BC and give them a second chance to live free and wild. Help us protect your children and grandchildren’s legacy by joining us for this special evening!
