Larry Ellison Conservation Center for Wildlife Care
Once opened, the Larry Ellison Conservation Center for Wildlife Care (LECCWC) located in Saratoga and operated by the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA (PHS/SPCA) will provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art intake-to-release rehabilitative care for sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife, drawing animals from San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties, eventually returning them to their natural habitats. LECCWC will also have a captive propagation program of small, endangered/imperiled native species that will seek to arrest and even reverse the imminent demise of threatened and endangered small California animals (such as the Mission Blue Butterfly and the San Francisco Garter Snake).
While we will have a transportation program, members of the public will be encouraged to bring wild animals in need to our intake building on the property. Visitors to the intake building will be able to interact with educational exhibits that demonstrate the interdependence and the need to share the surrounding habitats with all animals. Docent tours will be offered.
Please see renderings below from our architect, KSH Architects. Stay tuned to this space and our social media channels to learn when the LECCWC will be open.
