WRCNU Explorer is “Stuffed to Overflowing" with gifts from Order of Eastern Star!
Meet "Oscar" the River Otter. Oscar was an injured orphan found on the side of a road and Mom was nowhere to be seen. Due to being a single baby and his young age, Oscar did not have the skills required to live in the wild and therefore we found him a home in a legal sanctuary/zoo. Oscar is now living with "Suzie" a female Otter at the Alameda Park Zoo in NM. Oscar is AMAZINGLY smart and will make a great Education Ambassador.
This is "Aquila" a Bald Eagle suffering from a broken coracoid (collarbone); he was later successfully released (see photo below)

Did you know that the survival rate of an orphaned Beaver in the wild, that is under the age of two, is "zero"? Nipper was released with all the knowledge and skills he needs to survive in the wild--released June 2017
