Freedom Friday: Red Tide Success Stories 3

The Wildlife Center of Venice is hopeful that the Red Tide/Algae bloom is finally on it’s way out.  It has been devastating to our wildlife and we have admitted as many as 25 shorebirds in a single day.  They have a safe place to stay and can chalk up as many free meals as they need at WCV until we are able to send them back into safer waters thanks to our amazing supporters.  Here’s a great video from one of our volunteers of the release several pelicans and gulls back into safer waters.
