THEIR FUTURE IS IN YOUR HANDS!

“I will never forget the sinking feeling I felt when encountering oiled soaked birds during the American Trader Oil Spill --it changed my life forever.” On Feb 7th, 1990, no permanent facility existed to help these poor oiled creatures. Those haunting images of oiled soaked birds lying helpless on our beaches -- It was that moment that defined Debbie McGuire’s new path. The oil-stained beaches of Huntington Beach is where she met the late Greg Hickman and the late Dr. Joel Pasco. Their passion to help wildlife inspired her.  Debbie has been a WWCC volunteer, wildlife rehabilitation director and board member since that fateful day.  After retiring in February 2020 from 25 years as Hospital Administrator at a veterinary hospital, Debbie became our Executive Director in March 2020, The WWCC has been her passion for the last 30+ years. Going forward, she plans to continue the Wetlands and Wildlife Care Center’s efforts in rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing any native wildlife that may need our care.


What if our children grow up without ever having seen a red-tailed hawk in the wild, or a brown pelican fishing in the harbor?  What if, by their adulthoods, the last California wetlands have disappeared, or our endangered species are now something found only in a reference book?   The rescue, rehabilitation and preservation of our native wildlife and their habitats are a task that belongs to every concerned resident.  The Center is continually expanding to better serve the needs of Orange County and surrounding areas.  Join the effort to coexist with local wildlife, Volunteer your time. Donate to your Wildlife Center, and Collaborate with the cause; the result will be extraordinary.  THEIR FUTURE IS IN YOUR HANDS!
