Because they build their nests right out in the open, their behavior is easy to observe, but not always easy to understand. This presentation uses photos, videos and recorded vocalizations to explain osprey behavior.

Speaker Series "Introduction to Wildlife Photography"

People flock to Southwest Florida for outdoor recreational activities, and photography is an area that both young and old can enjoy! To be a successful wildlife photographer, you must become a wildlife observer. Knowing your subject thoroughly helps to anticipate interesting behavior so that you’ll be prepared with the right settings when the action begins. It takes patience, persistence, and practice to capture memorable snapshots. In the effort to get that perfect shot, it’s easy to forget that wildlife photography should be fun. This program is meant for introductory level photographers and will conclude with a photo opportunity at the end with some of CROW’s animal ambassadors.

Southwest Florida is filled with fascinating wildlife, and CROW provides a unique opportunity to look into wildlife rehabilitation and meet the staff responsible for their care. Wildlife walks are the best opportunity for visitors to get an in-depth look into the inner workings of our hospital and the treatment process. The program has two parts: an introductory presentation covering our medical and rehabilitation methods and then a guided tour through treatment areas of the hospital, concluding on our rehabilitation grounds. Wildlife Walks are approximately 1 and 1.5 hours: a 45-minute presentation with a 45-minute tour. This program is open to all, but it is not recommended for children under the age of 13.
