I am extremely concerned about the way the animals are cared for at this organization. I have years of professional experience working with raptors and after volunteering for WVRRC, I do not believe the board is properly managing the collection of birds in their possession. The organization recently went through some changes in board leadership and currently there is no one involved with the veterinary, husbandry, or natural history expertise to manage a collection of wild birds.
This is a wonderful organization. Birds of prey that have been illegally trapped, shot or injured are brought in from all across West Virginia and the veterinarians and other volunteers do everything they can to help save them! Once they are able to care for themselves they are released back into the wild.
