Education Ambassadors

What are "Education Ambassadors"?

Our primary rehabilitation goal is to release our patients back into the wild. Sadly, there are times when we are not able to meet that goal.


With legal state and federal permits, we are allowed to take a non-releasable animal and use it for educating the public in areas of conservation and natural history.  Above, a WRCNU educator is explaining the amazing traits of our Male American Kestrel, "Mr. Peepers".
