Connecting People and Wildlife through Rehabilitation and Education since 1994
Leslie Kiehl, dear friend and employee of WINC, passed away in April of 2015 from cancer. Though she will be truly missed, her passion and enthusiasm for education and wildlife rehabilitation will live on in all of lives that she touched.
It is WINC’s honor to develop the Leslie Kiehl WINC Education Fund.
To provide wildlife rehabilitation to Wisconsin wildlife with the intent to release back to the native habitat, conduct research designed to further the positive impact of rehabilitation, and provide quality community education programs and services.
It is the vision of the Wildlife In Need Center to become a nationally recognized Wildlife Rehabilitation Center that serves as a hub for other satellite facilities and is financially stable. WINC will work in collaboration with the University of Wisconsin-Waukesha and the University of Wisconsin Colleges and Extensions to be identified as the number one resource in the community that promotes an ethic of care and responsibility for the natural world.
