Since the outreach department has been open to accepting a new education screech-owl ambassador, Vice President for Outreach & Education Amanda decided to start an assessment to see if this owl could be a good fit.

During the month of October, opossum #21-3141 received two more courses of chelation therapy to remove the lead in his system. A repeat lead test performed on October 31 came back positive for lead, though the result of 0.034 ppm indicated a much lower subclinical level. Normally, the veterinary team would continue chelation therapy until all of the lead in a patient’s system is removed. However, because this opossum had undergone five courses of chelation therapy, which can be hard on the kidneys, they decided not to administer another round of treatment to remove the remaining lead.

During the past three weeks, Center staff have been closely observing Bald Eagle #21-3026.

Fortunately, the staff have observed new feather growth in the damaged areas during the past few weeks.
