You can see and hear the enthusiam in the way the people of WCV feel about this organization. They are never too busy to answer a question and the same question over and over again. Right now Dr. Dave is helping with the Richmond eaglets whose parents seem too have given up feeding them. Many laughs and tears reading their blog.

Where does one begin.....I discovered WCV through the rockstars. What a journey, one that the staff have embraced with gust and great planning, they have kept us a worldwide audience in the palm of their hands, through their love for wildlife and embracing the thousands of people who discovered them through the rockstars they have changed the way people view wildlife, they are educational, always ready to answer questions and more specifically TEACH us, this will have an impact on wildlife for generations to come worldwide, I am learning about animals I have never seen, their repoire with people from all over the world is outstanding, they take the time to talk to everyone not just people who will benefit them financially, they feel like family and I so very glad to have been a part in raising funds through voting to ensure that wildlife is given the best opportunity there is. They are all AWESOME

I can not say enough about such dedicated and wonderful people. I have learned so much about wildlife, how to handle a computer when having problems and just enjoying everyone. I wish I could personally meet each and everyone. My dream someday is to visit the center. The care and understanding everyone has of people and wildlife. You are all wonderful in my book. I feel honored to be able to get on the site everyday. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to working and caring for all the wild life you have saved, and released.

WCV are a very deserving organization for the wild life in their area. They also have been teaching the world, who are watching, about wildlife's needs and how to be better in our dealings with them in the wild. They are the best!!!

The Wildlife Center of Virginia, also known as WCV, is a phenomenal, caring, educational animal hospital known throughout the world for its expertize and willingness to cater to the wild animal/bird kingdom, and its human followers. A hugely worthy organization. I have learned so very much about our creatures sharing this earth with us, and use the knowledge in my daily life in so many different ways in hope of making life better.

I started watching the WCV cam when the Norfolk eaglets arrived after their mother was killed by an airplane. I now watch everyday and have learned so much about wildlife, their care and how each one of us can help. Ths staff is wonderful and have made the center the best in this country. I now know how important is the way we live our lives . Our foolishness does hurt wildlife and the Center is the reason I now live my life more wildlife friendly.

WCV is the most remarkable site I have ever been on. The entire staff is so professional, caring, and is also very in tune with their fans. Not enough can be said about WCV, they are just #1 in my book and I am sure in a lot of other books too.

The Wildlife Center of Virginia entered my life last April 2011 when they welcomed the three eaglets from NBG and nurtured them so they could be released back to the wild. My life has been changed; my outlook on wildlife has been expanded and I know I'm a better person because of it. They do such amazing work for any animal that happens to come their way needing help. I've learned so much and have shared my knowledge with anyone who will listen (and sometimes even with those who don't!) It's been a wonderful educational experience; one that I know will continue. I am so grateful for this whole experience. I can't imagine my day not starting without checking in with the WCV.

It is truly difficult to capture in words the impact the Wildlife Center of Virginia has, as each day adds another piece to a truly compelling puzzle held together by the compassion, care, dedication and outreach that the center provides for and on behalf of wildlife.
Perhaps what I have embraced the most about the center is recognizing that what they are providing is more than an opportunity to witness things via the internet and from home. It's about always having an open and willing mind that is receptive of the lessons they are trying to instill every day. Whether it be the dangers of lead being used in ammunition, the damage that is done when an animal becomes too comfortable with human contact, or how an action so small as tossing an apple core from a car window, can place the life of an animal in jeopardy.
Moreover it is the foundation upon which individuals can choose to become involved with and incorporate wildlife into their own lives. To that end it is because of the staff at Wildlife Center of Virginia that I have set my education goals towards becoming a communicator and advocate for wildlife. I want to make a difference and to ensure that wildlife which exists today is able to thrive and be protected for many years to come. As well as ensure that the lessons I’ve learned continue to be shared with new audiences. Thus far the pursuit of this has been fostered by the Wildlife Center of Virginia through continued support with my studies while at university, be it help with my course work, expanding on materials or granting an alternative perspective. They have also helped me to make connections within my own community which have allowed for hands on volunteer experience, and a network of opportunities opening that I never thought possible.
Each day it is a sincere privilege to be a part of the online audience which is benefiting from the education and outreach the Wildlife Center of Virginia provides. It is a pleasure to write this review on their behalf as the difference they continue to make in my life is truly extraordinary.

I have known about the Wildlife Center of Virginia and the wonderful work they do for over 20 years, since I took a screech owl to them for treatment. The people are passionate, dedicated and well trained. I've been to a couple of their open houses and they are fun and very informative. I wish I could afford to contribute more to their extremely worthy cause.
