2011 Walk for Wildlife - Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary

PRemier Award of Merit
The Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary is a 700-acre urban wildlife refuge featuring live animal exhibits, educational displays, miles of hiking and walking trails, and excellent wildlife viewing opportunities. In addition, the Sanctuary is also the second largest wildlife rehabilitation center in Wisconsin, taking in more than 4,500 injured and orphaned wildlife each year.

To help support the animal rehab program, the Sanctuary raises money from the Walk for Wildlife, an annual family walk that encourages participants to walk the Sanctuary’s trails and stop at information stations to meet animal ambassadors and learn about the wildlife in Wisconsin. L&F’s role was to garner media attention and to inform the community about the event.
