Meet Our Animal Ambassadors
Each of our Animal Ambassadors has a unique story and important place in our programs. Bringing guests closer to our ambassadors is just one way we will help others gain an appreciation for local wildlife.
Lola, the American kestrel (patient #13-0533), arrived at CROW in March 2013 with a broken wing that could not be repaired. Along with arthritis in the same wing, she is unable to fly more than a few feet. Without the ability to fly, she would be unable to hunt successfully in the wild.
Bashful, a male opossum (patient #16-1741), was found by residents who noticed the opossum wandering around the neighborhood leaning slightly to the left and continually falling on its side. He had suffered an unknown trauma and as a result, has neurological deficits that prevent him from being successful in the wild.
Mina, a great horned owl (patient #16-3770), was brought to the clinic in December of 2016. She had suffered an injury and lost part of her wing. The amputation had completely healed before she was admitted to the hospital. She was otherwise in good health and it is suspected her mate had been caring for her in the wild.
