Episode 401: The Greater Impact of Wildlife Patients

Episode 401: The Greater Impact of Wildlife Patients
Since its founding in 1982, the Wildlife Center of Virginia -- a hospital for native wildlife -- has treated more than 85,000 patients, including 3,804 in 2021 alone.  Every patient is offered state-of-the-art veterinary medical care; some are treated and released, while others may be too seriously injured to recover. Every single animal has a story to share, a story that illustrates the wider problems wildlife face – litter, pesticides, free-roaming domestic animals, habitat loss, and diseases.  Even patients that don’t make it live on by helping us shape our conservation education and research as we challenge people of all ages to take action to protect wildlife.
