Review for Wildlife Center of Virginia, Waynesboro, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It all began with an eagle nest. In a botanical garden in Norfolk, VA, a pair of eagles built a nest. For many years they reared their young. In the spring of 2011 they were tending their three chicks. I found the webcam that was on their nest and watched them. Then on April 25th of that year, Mom eagle was struck and killed by a landing plane at the nearby airport. The biologists determined that the dad eagle could not care for the growing eaglets alone. They were removed from the nest and taken to The Wildlife Center of Virginia across the state at Waynesboro. They were followed by thousands of 'surrogate parents' who managed to crash the center's internet as well as a lot of Waynesboro's by trying to log on to check on our babies. Within 24 hours the Center had strung wires through trees to set up a borrowed web camera to stream a view of the eaglets.On the moderated discussion on their web page the staff patiently answered all the worried questions. Above and beyond expectations they welcomed us. Since then I have remained an avid supporter of WCV. I have watched cams and participated in discussions about many different animals. As a teaching wildlife hospital, their work saving and releasing wildlife is superb! Their mission is also to teach us about caring for the environment. After all, our human actions have a great effect on wildlife. I will continue to support the WCV in order to be a small part in helping them do what they are called to do, save wildlife and the environment.

Review for Wildlife Center of Virginia, Waynesboro, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Wildlife Center of Virginia is an absolutely awesome place. They provide top notch veterinary care for Virginia wildlife. Through their web cam I have seen some remarkable healing done there. Not only do they provide this care for critters, they are a teaching hospital, training vets and rehabilitators from around the world. Another of their goals is to educate the public on the care of wildlife and our environment. For the past year they have been better able to reach more people through their web cam and chat that runs along beside it. All in all an outstanding organization!
