OPPORTUNITIES AMID THE CHALLENGES: These past few months have been monumentally challenging for everyone as we continue to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the many challenges, Lindsay Wildlife Experience is "here to stay," says LWE Executive Director Carlos de la Rosa. "We’re not interested in surviving the pandemic. We’re keen to adapt, grow, and thrive through it to continue our life-long mission: To connect people with wildlife to inspire responsibility and respect for the world we share." Learn about our efforts to sustain Lindsay through the pandemic, and our vision for the future at https://bit.ly/2OcRrBB. Lead Keeper Adam is captured here with Valkyrie, one of two Swainson's Hawks that call Lindsay home. #lindsaywildlife #wildlifehospital #wildliferehabilitation #animalambassadors #training #swainsonshawk #hawk
RED BAT FAMILY: A female Red Bat and her three babies arrived at our hospital on June 28 from Oakley. The bats were found lying on the sidewalk in front of a house. When discovered, the mother bat was active but her babies were not. The mom's wing joints appear to have slight bruising but her feet cling well and she has been observed moving around in her enclosure. The bats are now in home care with volunteer Suzy as they prepare for their journey back to the wild. Red bats are solitary animals known for their shaggy fur. They prefer roosting in broadleaf trees such as oaks, willows and sycamores where they can be mistaken for dead leaves when cloaked in their wings! #lindsaywildlife #wildlifepatientstories #wildlifehospital #wildliferehabilitation #redbat #bat #volunteer
