Time Flies And So Do Our Squirrels

We have been rather busy since our last blog post! We have seen roughly over a hundred patients over the last two months. Here are just some of the highlights.

These guys were lucky enough to get to break in a new multistory condo where they can hone their skills as they are preparing for release. This will put our combined released squirrel count this year over 100!

We have worked with Florida Wildlife Commission on 2 bald eagles cases. Unfortunately the first eagle was transferred to a different facility and was not able to pull through. However, our next eagle, who had been struck by car stayed in our car for the duration of its treatment, made a full recovery and had a beautiful released.

We have also raised and released another passel (or litter) of baby opossums.


This alligator snapping turtle was so grateful that we were able to patch him up that he wanted to take a piece of us with him. Fortunately our very experienced team was able to treat him AND keep all of our fingers!

We also rescued and released a handful of clapper rails, several beautifully colored migratory birds and a bunch of wild bunnies.

If you happen to find any wildlife in trouble please make sure you report it to a licensed rescue organization like Owl’s Nest Sanctuary for Wildlife so that it can receive the care and treatment it needs. We also ask that you consider making a donation to Owl’s Nest Sanctuary for Wildlife so that we may continue our work which includes the rescue, rehabilitation and release of wildlife in the Tampa Bay Area.
