Rockfish Wildlife Sanctuary: Supporting Native Species (ONLINE)​​​​​​​

Thursday, December 10, 2020 | 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Details:
Wildlife rehabilitators play an important role in our communities by being a first-step resource when someone encounters a wild animal in need. Rockfish Wildlife Sanctuary aims to reduce wildlife suffering in Central Virginia by rehabilitating injured and orphaned native species. Founded in 2004 out of their founder's home, they have since expanded to a 20 acre facility in gorgeous Nelson County where their 50+ enclosures cater to nearly all native species in Virginia. RWS typically intake over 800 wild animal patients every year! That number continues to trend upward as they continue developing and urbanizing their landscapes.
So how do we become better neighbors to our local wildlife, and why should we care in the first place? And what on earth do wildlife rehabbers actually do? In this virtual learning program with The Center, RWS Outreach Coordinator and wildlife rehabilitator Sarah Cooperman will tell you about what goes into the process of "Rescue, Rehab, and Release." Sarah will also introduce you to some of our furry, feathered, and scaly education animal ambassadors who live year-round at RWS. Learn their stories and all about our fascinating, helpful wild neighbors here in Virginia during this fun-filled glimpse into the world of wildlife rehabilitation! Free and open to all.
