Critter Cam 2
Or ... you're watching Bear Cam! These Black Bear yearlings [born in early 2020] are currently housed in the Center's Black Bear Complex. The bears currently have access to two of the three yards, exploring an area of the forest about the size of an acre. They will be released in the spring of 2021.
The Wildlife Center has a variety of online educational and distance learning opportunities for students of all ages, which all promote positive attitudes toward wildlife and emphasize how personal choices affect the health of the environment.
Caring for Critters
The Wildlife Center cares for about two dozen permanent animal residents – hawks, owls, eagles, opossums, and snakes – who are important wildlife ambassadors.
Founded in 1982, the Wildlife Center of Virginia has provided quality health care, often on an emergency basis, to more than 80,000 sick, injured, and orphaned wild animals. As a non-profit organization, the Center relies on the generosity of caring individuals.
