Each month, the Wildlife Center hosts “Hospital Cam”! This Critter Cam event offers viewers a behind-the-scenes look into the work of a wildlife hospital. On the selected day, Hospital Cam viewers can virtually peer over the shoulders of the veterinary team as they begin treatments at 9:00 a.m. Eastern. Treatments may include an examination of a Bald Eagle, changing a bandage on a Virginia Opossum, medicating a turtle, giving fluids to a bear cub, or splinting a songbird’s wing. The case load at the Center fluctuates throughout the year – you never know what will happen in a wildlife hospital!
Outreach staff members offer a play-by-play of the actions on Hospital Cam and are available to answer questions on the moderated discussion. Check out this Hospital Cam event from August 2017!
