CROW And Tipsy Turtle Team Up for Wildlife

provided to The Santiva Chronicle

Join the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife at the Tipsy Turtle Restaurant and Back Bar from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 1 for a family friendly night of amazing food in support of native and migratory wildlife.

The night, themed as “Tipsy Tortoise” night, will feature CROW’s Animal Ambassador Biscuit, the gopher tortoise. Biscuit will be out to meet and greet with patrons while CROW’s education staff shares fun facts and information about this keystone species. While diners learn more about wildlife rehabilitation and native wildlife, Tipsy Turtle is also donating a very generous 50 percent of food and beverages purchased that evening to help wildlife recovering in CROW’s hospital.

The “wild” nights at Tipsy Turtle, located at 1223 Periwinkle Way, will continue to take place the first Tuesday each month. A different Animal Ambassador will be in attendance for each event. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, CROW relies on donations from the community, funds raised through events, admission to its Visitor Education Center and foundational grants to treat thousands of animals admitted to its hospital each year.
