Posie was found as a baby opossum in the spring of 2017. She had multiple head wounds and was treated by a veterinarian; after months of treatment, the vet found that Posie had permanent neurologic issues, including a head tilt and problems with her balance. Posie came to the Wildlife Center to join the team of education ambassadors who travel around the state teaching others about wildlife and the environment. She became an official member of the team in the fall of 2017.

Willow was found as a baby opossum in the summer of 2016 and was kept as an illegal pet. She was given to a permitted wildlife rehabilitator in early 2017; Willow was very friendly, and the rehabilitator attempted to give Willow time to “wild up” again in hopes of releasing her. After many months of assessment, it was determined that Willow was simply too friendly for release. Willow also has chronic sinus issues, which the Wildlife Center team continues to assess and diagnose. She joined the Wildlife Center team of education ambassadors in the fall of 2017.
