Antler Ridge Wildlife Sanctuary rescues over 1,000 injured, ill, and orphaned wildlife a year from the northern New Jersey area, then rehabilitates them with the intention of releasing them back to the wild.
While it doesn’t have public visiting hours (remember, this is a rehab, not a zoo. These are wild animals.), I was invited to come by and donate my services to ideally help attract potential donors through quality photography of the facilities and their guests!
Its guests are primarily wild mammals that are indigenous to the area, like grey squirrels, raccoons, possums, and the occasional porcupine), though a handful of farm animals also inhabit the secluded 120-acre farmland in the New Jersey woods.
