GRANTS PASS, Ore. — In an effort to secure funding for their non-profit organization, the leaders of Wildlife Images Rehabilitation and Education Center in Grants Pass have launched the If Not You, WHOO? campaign to bring in new members and provide new ways to experience wildlife.

The $30 yearly memberships at Wildlife Images will now feature an "open campus model," according to the organization — giving members unlimited visits throughout the yearly member period without having to book a tour in advance or follow a set schedule. Instead, members can walk through the center at their own pace and learn from educational signs and docents.

Wildlife Images says that the memberships also include member-only events and invitations to see animals released back into the wild, plus discounts on other events and educational programs.

The organization says that it faces a $300,000 budget shortfall after extreme weather and impacts from the worsening wildfires over the last five years. Wildlife Images currently boasts 600 members, it hopes to drive that number up beyond 4,000 with this campaign.

Wildlife Images is approaching its 40th year of "saving wild animals and educating the public."

Two Western screech owls received some much-needed eye surgery due to major ailments after Wildlife Images brought them to a local specialist.
