May was a busy month for releases -
1 x Barred owl, 2 x Merlins, 2 x goslings and a Black vulture.
  • The young Black vulture was admitted last month from Cape Breton and was successfully released last week. Enjoy the beautiful images of his short stay with us and his release. Release images by Sue Hutchins and Alix D’Entremont and our vulture loving volunteer Erin Galler opened the carrier door to freedom. 😊
  • The Barred owl was admitted Dec 2019 after being clipped by a truck and getting caught in the grill. Miraculously it was beside the truck the next morning and brought into us by the Department of Lands and Forestry. 5 months later and this beauty was successfully released.
NOTE: “Please slow down and keep your eyes active on the road ahead. If you think you may have hit an owl but don't see it on the road, please pull over as soon as it is safe to do so and check your vehicle's grill. Owls (and other animals) can get trapped in them on impact.”
  • A wonderful success story was the 2 orphaned goslings brought into the centre. Our Wildlife operations manager Brenda Boates had done her research and knew the potential was there to adopt them out to a brand new Canada Goose family.
But would it really work?
Off she went with friends to CWRC, Al Eastman (credited with the beautiful video and image shared here) and Lyn Curwin to a nearby pond. A Canada goose family with 4 goslings was the target. Brenda held up our 2 orphaned goslings and they peeped up a storm and, to quote Al Eastman...
  ‘The peeping from the two brought instant recognition and instant acceptance from the adults. It was amazing to see as a family of four youngsters  became six. "
Enjoy the beautiful video of this adoption in action. Truly moving.

Foxes, Foxes Everywhere
(and boy can they eat!)
We have some very cute youngsters at the centre at the moment, but the reality of why they are with us is a sad but all too familiar tale.
This rescue, initiated by the Department of Lands and Forestry, was
For 2 years this community had been feeding a pair of foxes which has made them unafraid of humans, creating nuisance animals and fear in the community for small pets and young children. 

We never want to separate a mother from her kits, but in this scenario, there were human interactions creating an unsafe environment for these young kits. 
The kits are thriving and growing fast in their large outdoor enclosure and have extremely limited human interaction.
After a few days of being inside they were moved into a large outdoor enclosure in a remote corner of the CWRC property and are playing and cavorting and eating up a storm (GoPro cameras are the best!)

Did I mention they are eating up a storm?! If you'd like to help with their food costs why not purchase an animal themed face mask (see below) or donate directly by
