Wildlife Rescue 101
December 8, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Wednesday, repeating until December 29, 2021
Have you ever come across wildlife in “distress” but did not know the appropriate steps to help? Florida is home to more than 700 terrestrial animals and other invertebrates, and they all depend on our sustainable recreational practices to survive. From posturing to vocalizations, animals communicate in a variety of ways and, at times, indicate their need for human assistance. Whether it is deterring visitors from feeding birds on the beach or detaching a pelican from fishing line in the mangroves, this program will cover wildlife rescue assessment as well as handling techniques!
One of CROW’s Animal Ambassadors will be present.
General Admission – Adults: $12, Ages 4-12: $7, Ages 3 and under: Free
Guests learn about CROW’s history and day-to-day operations through displays, interactive exhibits and video. The center also features live animal exhibits, special children’s areas and live camera feeds of the hospital intake room and several outdoor rehabilitation enclosures. General Admission includes the Daily Presentation and no reservation is required.
*For the safety of our animals and other guests, MASKS ARE REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES IN THE VISITOR EDUCATION CENTER.
