In 2016 Sharon Audubon received a generous Grant from the John T. and Jane A. Wiederhold Foundation to completely make over their wildlife rehabilitation facilities, including building a suite of wild bird aviaries and a brand new 60 foot flight enclosure to rehabilitate wild birds. Audubon Sharon’s work makes an intense local impact on wild bird populations as they are the only staffed wildlife rehabilitation facility in NW Connecticut and many of the birds that are save are neotropical migrants.
The Matang Wildlife Centre in Sarawak, Malaysia is dedicated to the care and rehabilitation of orangutans. Their core belief is that every animal has the chance to be released back into the wild. On a recent visit to the centre, I got the chance to see and experience the day-to-day tasks required to care for the animals with their Heart2Heart With Orangutan volunteer program.

The North Carolina Zoo’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center recently celebrated the successful rehabilitation and release of 10 Chimney swifts, a bird species that has suffered sharp declines as the chimneys they roost in fall into disuse. Due to some unique anatomy they cannot perch like songbirds, and therefore must have deep shafts in which they raise their families and roost at night. Did you know that a Chimney swift eats nearly one third of their own weight in flying insect pests such as mosquitoes, biting flies and termites every day? Watch to see the release and to learn more about these fascinating and beneficial birds.
A red-tailed hawk found badly injured by PG&E crews more than a year ago was released today (Jan. 10) in a San Jose park after the utility partnered with a wildlife center to rehabilitate the raptor.
PG&E employees arriving to work at a substation in Fremont discovered the hawk in October 2012. The bird, an adult female, sustained burns to its wings, feet, chest, abdomen and face. It couldn’t fly.
Originally taken to a nearby humane society, the hawk was transferred to the Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley in San Jose for emergency treatment.
The center, which takes in more than 4,000 orphaned, injured and sick birds and mammals each year, is the largest wildlife rehabilitation center in Santa Clara County.
Ashley Kinney, the center’s wildlife rehabilitation supervisor, said she knew right away that the hawk would survive despite its injuries.
“She had a light in her eye and she was very feisty,” Kinney said. “We knew she was capable of healing.”
Due to the severity of the hawk’s injuries, the center couldn’t release the bird until it fully molted the old, damaged feathers and grew in a new set that enabled it to fly again. The bird was held in a large flight conditioning enclosure to allow it to build up needed strength and stamina to survive in the wild.
During its recovery, the hawk was fed 10 small mice a day or one large rat. By the time of its release it was plumper than most hawks, Kinney said.
The bird was released at Grant Ranch Park, a remote location nestled in a valley below Lick Observatory on Mount Hamilton high above San Jose. The habitat is ideal with lots of trees for cover and ample food supply.
In an instant, the hawk flew and perched at the top of a nearby tree where it remained for about 15 minutes. Then as volunteers cheered and yelled “You go girl,” it flew off and joined a group of other red-tailed hawks.
“She can do whatever she wants,” Kinney said. “She’s a free woman.” Video Rating: / 5
