Mountain View Farm Animal Sanctuary
East Burke, VT

Mountain View Farm Animal SanctuaryFounded in mid-2003 by Dr. John Pastore (Inn owner, animal lover and Boston cardiologist), the Mountain View Farm Animal Sanctuary is a non-profit Vermont corporation dedicated to providing farm animals, especially ones with a difficult past, with a good future and a chance at a long and healthy life. Says Dr. Pastore, "I have no doubt that it will be good for the farm animals we are able to sanctuary, because we've seen that already, but maybe the greater effect will be a more general respect and affection for all animals, sanctuaried or not."

Norcross Wildlife Sanctuary Our work-and-play-place is wonderful, full of wild animals and friendly people from all over the world. Our mission is to help the Maine Wildlife Park become an even more inviting, intriguing and informative place. You can find out more about the Park here.

We’re proud to say that we’ve been a major part of the Park’s impressive growth. More than 100,000 people came to visit last summer, and much of what they saw was due to our efforts. But there’s a lot more to do, and to do it we need more Friends. We hope you’ll think about joining with us!

Audubon Environmental EducationFog rising off a pristine clear lake at dawn. Twigs snap, and a flash of fur leaps away. The cool damp of the forest floor gives way to colorful meadows and a peek at a snowy summit. The smell, color and textures all work together to put you in your favorite place - the great outdoors of New Hampshire. We know why you love it out there - for the same reasons we do.

The Wildlife Heritage Foundation was created to help fund projects and programs that support sustaining the traditions, lifestyle and special places we cherish here in New Hampshire. Fishing, hunting, boating, hiking and wildlife watching are among the many activities we help to sustain through grants to the NH Fish and Game Department. As the official non-profit partner of the Department, we work hand-in-hand with educators, scientists, researchers and wildlife experts to leverage resources that help keep our fish and wildlife communities healthy and abundant.
