DID YOU KNOW: 90% squirrel population at this wildlife sanctuary comprises rescued squirrels (either orphaned babies or injured). They are very social and always busy. But they are wild animals. PLease do not feed nor try to pet, thanks! Many are still in training, being led to live deeper in the woodland forest. They need to be independent if they are to survive. Thank you certified rehabbers, Maura and Regina!
"Henrieta" is our wild turkey who lives at our wildlife sanctuary. Her 3 babies are now grown! Please do not chase, thanks!
