Baby OpossumsOur Residents

When animals are brought to the Rehabilitation Hospital here at the Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge, our goal is to set the animals free as soon as they are healthy enough to survive on their own in the wild.

Great Horned OwlSometimes an animal cannot be set free because of a permanent disability. A permanent disability may prevent an animal from finding food or protecting itself. Severe injuries (such as a broken wing) or birth defects can cause permanent disabilities.

American Kestrel Killy

If a person finds and raises a baby animal, the animal cannot be safely released back into the wild. It loses its natural fear of humans and learns to depend on humans for all of its needs. If released into the wild, the animal wouldn’t be able survive on its own. In the case of a mammal, this problem is called habituation. If the animal is a bird, this is called imprinting.

At the Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge, we take care of the animals that live in our outdoor Wildlife Housing Area because they cannot care for themselves. The animals are on display so that visitors to the Refuge can learn about New Jersey wildlife. We hope to encourage an appreciation and respect for the native animals of our state.

Here are some of our Resident Wildlife:

Shadow the Gray Fox

Sassafras the White Tailed Deer
