The Wildlife Center of Virginia has been caring for injured and orphaned wild animals for 30 years. Recently, the center has has invited classrooms to become more involved in learning about wildlife via their new live stream of various recovering patients. Many classrooms participate in the blog on a regular basis. WCV reaches out other ways as well: seminars, classes, open houses, lectures and demonstrations all developed to teach people to care for and appreciate their wildlife...and while the teaching goes on...the center is treating, rehabbing and releasing 100's of animals back to their wild places

I began watching this organizations critter cam last year when they began caring for three Norfolk eaglets. Have enjoyed their cam experience which has expanded to highlight several other birds during the past year. They provide rehab services to injured wildlife and also train rehab specialists from all over. Their blog has provided exceptional information on the animals that they treat and show on the cam as well as information on conservation issues. It has been both entertaining and informative.

This organization has taught the public the advantages to saving wildlife no matter how small or large. The ecosystem depends on every living thing, everything has a purpose which is what I have learned over the past year visiting the WCV online camera and chat! The folks there will answer any question in a professional manner and uses a lot of humor also. School teachers from all over the country utilize WCV's online crittercam for educational purposes. WCV is a world class organization!
