The Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center, formerly the Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons, is a not-for-profit wildlife hospital dedicated to the rehabilitation of wild animals impacted by human encroachment on their habitat. A grassroots organization, the Center has grown from a few concerned friends to a group of over 1,000 members and supporters. The Center is a full-time professional wildlife hospital staffed by licensed rehabilitators, biologists, animal behaviorists and volunteers. Located in a unique and irreplaceable ecosystem, the Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center facility consists of salt and fresh water wetlands, pine barrens, deciduous forest and meadowland. The hospital at the Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center is designed exclusively for wild animals. Unlike veterinary hospitals, the space is free of any ambient noises or smells to stress the animals that are recovering within.
