The volunteers who save the lives of our local wildlife are UNBELIEVABLE! This amazing lady came out from the Wildlife Center of Venice and searched by kayak for this pelican who was tethered to a 20 foot fishing line and had a 3 prong fishing lure embedded in it's wing! What a hero 🌞

The Wildlife Center of Venice, Inc. has the awesome opportunity to finally own its own property and satisfy long pent up growth demands in the very same neighborhood we've resided in and served since 2004. We not only love the neighborhood, we really love the property across the street. The beautiful and open pastures can easily accommodate our multitude of cages and aviaries, while still providing a private and tranquil setting ideal for the recuperation of our patients as they prepare for a return to the wild. If you would like to donate to our fund, and read our whole story, please go to our website listed in our bio and click on the gofundme link. Your wildlife thanks you in advance. #gofundme #wil#wildlifeue #wildlife #wildliferehab #wildliferehabilitation #wildlifecenterofvenice #rescue #rehab #release #veniceflorida #sarasota #nokomis #swfl #srq #northport #portcharlotte #bocagrande

Avian update... this juvenile red tailed hawk apparently flew into some power lines. Ouch. After losing his memory, wallet, and a good amount of feathers the #wil#wildcenterofvenice took him to the raptor recovery room. He is under a guarded prognosis. So while he's literally out of the woods, recovery wise, he is not. #bitofabummer #wild #hawk #redtailedhawk #nogloves #pinches #sar#sarasotaa> #sarasota #robartsarena #candles #will #return

Dr. Salisbury, a veterinary ophthalmologist from Sarasota, consults on a fledgling barred owl for PRWC. The baby fell from its nest and had some cloudiness in the lenses of its eyes. Dr. Salisbury was able to see normal structures at the back of the owl's eyes and pronounced its vision okay. Wildlife Center of Venice will help us re-nest the baby. Working together for the sake of wildlife! #owl #barredowl #bird #wildlife #wildliferescue #wildliferehab #puntagordafl #peaceriverwildlifecenter #wildlifecenterofvenice

Please remember when finding any orphaned babies such as squirrels in this cold weather: Put them in a box with a soft cloth and if you have a heating pad to keep warm, set to low and call WCV immediately. Never offer food or water to any wildlife. #wildlifecenterofvenice #rescue #rehab #release #wildliferescue #wildliferehab #wildliferehabilitation #veniceflorida #sarasota #swfl #srq #northport #englewood #nokomis #portcharlotte #bocagrande
