Wildlife face ever-increasing risks from human involvement in their world, ranging from vehicular collisions to climate change and infrastructure development. Rockfish Wildlife Sanctuary¬†strives to bring awareness to the endangerment of wildlife and stresses the importances of returning animals back into the environment to positively impact that population’s survival.

The nonprofit provides educational outreach and serves around 800 animals per year including bats, turtles, snakes, and birds, among others.
