If you have the space, and the time, consider joining me in becoming part of the next generation of Purple Martin landlords.

This was a truly memorable experience -- that I was grateful to take part in.
I felt out of place like my humanity was sticking out like a sore thumb.
I am quite proud to have been a part of the team providing this frog’s care and to have contributed something to amphibian medicine and conservation.
I can’t fully put into words what the Wildlife Center of Virginia has meant to me. How thankful I am for this organization, and just how being in this field has fulfilled and empowered me.
This splint was by far the tiniest splint I have placed to date and it was so much fun!
I love that I learn from each of these events. Always something new in the world of wildlife!
The closest I have ever been to one was from a far distance on hiking trails, so you could imagine my excitement becoming part of the bear care team and taking on this new role as a “bear mom”.
It was a bright spot in my day … my week … my month.
I learned so much from this Mallard, not only about surgery and managing a case like this after surgery, but also what to do when everything seems to be going wrong. It was so rewarding to see this patient come in unable to walk and through the amazing care the WCV provided, walk away back into his habitat when he was released.
