NWC Videos & Photos

NWC on the Web!

Over the last few years more and more visitors have asked us do we have videos or live feed of the animals on our website. Until recently this wasn't possible for us. With a wonderful donation of cameras, equipment and plasma TV from the George and Velta Anast Foundation and Northern Wisconsin Security & Sound, INC. we have been able to show live viewings of some of our patients (bear cubs, eagles and fawns) at the Center. This got us to thinking that we would really like to make this experience available on the web. We are starting out small, but hope to make more videos and viewings available to the Internet audience.

Click the link below to see videos of bear cubs, eagle being tube feed, vintage NWC footage and much more. We are always adding more.

Patients: Past and Present Rescues and Releases


Digging through our basement one day we found over a thousand slides with photos and presentations on them. We think·that they span the·80's decade. These photos capture some of the early days; much has changed since then. Unfortunately we don't know all of the stories behind these photos, thought the ones we do know we hope to add soon.·If anyone out there knows, we would love to hear the stories behind some of these images.
