On Friday, June 3, Annette Daly, Director of Corporate Learning and Communications for Air Wisconsin, visited the Wildlife Center. Ed gave Annette a tour, including a visit to the flight enclosure that is currently under remodeling, as well as a meet-n-greet with Buddy the Bald Eagle. Annette also presented a check from Air Wisconsin to help support the Center’s care of the eaglets.
“The airstrike at the Norfolk airport was an unavoidable and tragic accident,” Ed Clark said. “Air Wisconsin has stepped up and been a responsible corporate citizen, and we are grateful for their special support.”
In a letter to Ed, Annette wrote, “Although nothing can replace the care of a mother, our sincere hope is that the eaglets will grow into healthy adults and enjoy long lives. They are very fortunate to have you and your trained and caring staff to nurture them, and prepare them for release. Many thanks for all you’ve done for these precious, young and majestic birds.”
Air Wisconsin is the largest independently held regional airline in the United States, serving about 70 cities throughout North America and carrying six million passengers a year.
