About Land for Urban Wildlife
We are a non-profit, tax exempt organization that promotes wildlife preservation in urban settings. We are dedicated to the preservation of urban wildlife habitat.
Our mission is organized around the following points:
- To purchase urban land (where wildlife exist already) for the conservation of wildlife. That way we would provide wildlife habitat and buffer zones between developed areas. This would not only benefit the animals (such as squirrels, raccoons, opossums, and birds such as finches, humming birds, and raptors) but would allow a breather for people as well.
- To prevent over-development of land use within city limits. This over-development has destroyed wildlife habitat by displacing or eliminating the animals previously established on the land and consequently has alienated and confined people to crowded places devoid of animal life. One of our goals, therefore, is to promote better use of land so that the urban wildlife can have habitat for their survival.
- To establish small observatory stations where children and adults could go to watch the animals and learn about their behaviors.
