By Staff | Jul 17, 2019

PHOTO PROVIDED Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife rehabilitator Morgan Hester presents “Birds of Prey,” which will now be offered also on Fridays at 2 p.m. through Aug. 16.

The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife on Sanibel will offer additional presentations at 2 p.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays through Aug. 16.

Daily presentations, which are also offered Monday through Friday at 11 a.m. in the AWC Visitor Education Center, allow visitors to engage with a staff member or student while learning more about the patients admitted to CROW’s wildlife hospital. Presentations last approximately 45 minutes and topics cover a variety of native Southwest Florida wildlife such as gopher tortoises, owls and snakes.

“We want to ensure everyone who visits CROW has an opportunity to interact with our staff and meet our ambassadors,” Executive Director Alison Charney Hussey said. “With the increase of summer visitors we have had this year, more presentations were needed.”

The additional afternoon topics will include “Virginia Opossums” each Wednesday, “Sea Turtles” on Thursdays and “Birds of Prey” every Friday. Each presentation features one of CROW’s Animal Ambassadors, non-releasable wildlife due to injury or other circumstances.

The AWC Visitor Education Center is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The daily presentations are included with general admission – $12 for adults and $7 for children ages 4-12.
