What we do. Sandhill rescue

Here is a cool rescue at the Sarasota County landfill of a Sandhill Crane that had tape tangled around it’s beak.  The tape can cut off circulation and cause their beaks to fall off to where they cannot eat anymore and inevitably starve to death.  Steph is WCV’s foremost expert in snaring birds and I was privileged to help with the assist.  Quick recovery and release back into the wild.

At the Wildlife Center of Venice (501c3 Non-Profit), we are committed to the preservation, rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife in our local community.  We service all of Sarasota and West Charlotte counties in the State of Florida. We work hard each day to uphold these values, but we need each and every one of you to help us in this noble cause.
