Wildlife Educational Ambassadors

PWRC Ambassador Sponsorship Program

Sponsoring our amazing Education Ambassadors will help purchase handling equipment, their medical expenses, and food for one year. All monthly sponsorships qualify for PWRC membership, newsletter, a picture and bio of the ambassador. Sponsorships over $100 will receive a Virtual presentation and any sponsorship over $200 will receive a presentation with the ambassador at an event or school of your choice. Even our retired ambassadors still need to be cared for the rest of their life.

Minimum Yearly Donation: $200

Kangee is a Common raven that came to Prairie Wildlife as a starving young fledgling in 2016. She was an orphan, and it was unknown what happened to her parents. Kangee was too young to be on her own at that point. Through the rehabilitation process, she quickly became habituated to people since we did not have other ravens to learn from. Kangee then became a fantastic addition to the ambassador program.
