Modern-Day ‘Ark’ Provides Animal Refuge

Just as the age-old tale of Noah’s Ark provided refuge for the world’s wildlife, Pennsylvania’s The Aark Rehabilitation and Education Center, is doing the same. Nestled in the countryside of Chalfont, Pennsylvania, The Aark, a wildlife rescue center, is giving back to the state by saving thousands of injured and orphaned birds and mammals annually.

The work of The Aark is divided into three major areas:  rehabilitation, education and training, each with the goal of helping to save the animals and release them back into the wild.

The Aark’s founder, Mary Jane Stretch, tells Eye Opener that the animals at the wildlife rehabilitation center all have their own unique stories.  Check out The Aark’s heartwarming story about a vulture named Thing– you won’t want to miss it!  

The Aark is a non-profit organization that works solely off of donations.  If you would like to donate to The Aark Wildlife Rehabilitation and EducationCenter head to www.aark.org.
