You’re invited to a wildlife baby shower happening Saturday, February 25, from 10am-3pm. Don’t  miss this opportunity to learn from CNC’s wildlife  technicians what to do should you find baby birds or  other baby animals. Ticketing and member reservations  are open.  

Come learn all about CNC’s efforts to help injured  wildlife as we celebrate a wildlife baby shower. The  wildlife team relies heavily on donations to do their  work and provide care for the animals. Licensed Wildlife  Rehabilitators cannot accept payment for their services  therefore without the help of the community, CNC will  not be able to support all the baby animals who come  to us this year. Northside Hospital will match all donations  to the Wildlife Department during the month of February,  up to $5,000. 

Spring brings buds, blooms, and rains, and lots of  calls to the Wildlife Department at CNC about baby  animals. While CNC is licensed and trained only for  raptors, reptiles, and amphibians, the Wildlife Department  responds to over 150 requests each month in spring  regarding wildlife babies of all species. Almost 300  animals less than one year of age were accepted for  care at CNC while the others are referred to rehabbers  of those species if necessary. Generally, it costs about 3  times as much to rehab a juvenile than an adult mostly  because they eat so much more food. Overall, CNC  takes in over 700 injured animals each year. 

This day is a great opportunity to meet wildlife  technicians and learn about what they do as well as  get up close to some amazing animals. Learn from  professionals what to do when you find a baby animal.  CNC will have unique wildlife walks with specialists  dishing all the best stories about our rehabilitated  animals, community partners, and fun games for the  whole family to learn about their favorite baby animals.
