Saving Lives, Preserving Wildlife, Enriching the Environment
Antler Ridge Wildlife Sanctuary, a 120-acre preserved farm located in Warren County, New Jersey, is a wildlife rehabilitation center that provides vital care and treatment to sick, injured or orphaned wildlife.
Licensed by the state of New Jersey to care for fawns, raccoon, skunks, opossums, squirrels, rabbits, woodchucks and other small mammals, the Sanctuary is dedicated to rehabilitating these animals back to health so they can be returned to the wild where they belong.
Our mission is also actively educate the public on the importance of:
Caring for the ecosystems
Supporting the environment in which we live
Respecting the wildlife with whom we share this environment
Protecting and preserving our native lands for the future wildlife habitat
Bank of America sends in the troops to Antler Ridge Wildlife Sanctuary
Bank of America employees from the local branches volunteered their time at the sanctuary to help build squirrel houses and feed the animals. It was fun to see "our bankers" getting their hands (and other parts) dirty. Victoria, the branch manager from the Panther Valley Branch led the gang and was the first to jump in on feeding. Antler Ridge Wildlife Sanctuary is licensed by the State of New Jersey to care for all mammals. The sanctuary is supported by a volunteer base of dedicated individuals who work tirelessly to help care for the over 900 animals a year. The sanctuary is funded by donations from the local community and by corporations like Bank of America who support local non-profits with their staff who can volunteer on company time. "It isn't every day we have this opportunity to leave our inside jobs and help support organization's like Antler Ridge, I had no idea how much work and support they need, we will definitely be back" stated one of the Bank of America Volunteers. Each of the "bankers" assembled and painted squirrel boxes. Antler Ridge Wildlife Sanctuary will use over 50 squirrel boxes a season, this year Sara and Bridgett volunteers working on their silver award made about 25 boxes to start the season, but as we all know squirrels will have two litters a year, so thanks to the Bank of America volunteers to help us have housing for the second round of squirrels. If you would like to support the sanctuary through your company you can contact the Sanctuary Director and have a great day of learning about NJ wildlife and support the volunteer efforts of Antler Ridge Wildlife Sanctuary.
