In 2016, CROW wildlife hospital cared for 3,953 patients with more than 1,200 of those being successfully released back to the wild. CROW’s Hospital Director, Dr. Heather Barron, DVM, oversees the daily operations.
CROW’s reputation as a teaching hospital has attracted students from a vast number of veterinary schools in the country, as well as internationally. Students work long hours and are very dedicated to learning how to care for the native and migratory species that CROW sees as patients.
In 2016, CROW accepted 37 Extern students (3 to 22 weeks), 7 Fellows (intensive 6 months), three DVM Interns (1 for the full year and 2 for half the year) and two Wildlife Care and Education Interns. Together, these students dedicated over 31,000 hours of animal care. Last year, 5 countries were represented including Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Scotland and the United Kingdom.
