CWRC, founded in 2001, is a well-respected wildlife rehabilitation centre.
Our wildlife operations manager, who is IRWC qualified, is in regular communication with other registered wildlife centres in Canada, the United States and even Australia. These are wonderful relationships that help all centres share best practices, ask for advice or techniques for specific animals or issues and stay up to date on current procedures and discoveries.
CWRC is particularly well known for raptors, especially eagles and our prickly, often misunderstood friend, the porcupine.
We’d like to share a recent experience where CWRC was contacted by a registered wildlife centre in BC for help on how to handle and feed and care for a premature porcupette.
Our wildlife operations manager leapt into this with gusto asking many questions to clearly understand the situation and then through messenger, text and pictures guided the care of the wee porc.
Important milestones like porc's first solid poop were shared! Hooray! That's a sign of a healthy baby!
.Enjoy the photos of the little one. And know that Nova Scotia and CWRC have an impact from coast to coast in this big, beautiful country...and beyond!
