The Calusa Herpetological Society
Of Southwest Florida
Thursday, October 5, 2017 - 7:00 pm
SPEAKER & TOPIC: Tonight's speaker is Rachel Rainbolt, the Development and Education Coordinator at C.R.O.W (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife) on Sanibel Island. The title of her talk is Wild about Rehabilitation. Southwest Florida is filled with fascinating wildlife! When they become sick, injured or orphaned these animals are transported to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) for medical and supportive care. After a patient stabilizes in the hospital, CROW's rehabilitation staff provides them with a combination of balanced diet, husbandry and physical therapy. This program will discuss common reasons for admission and treatment, including a live encounter with Sheldon the Gopher Tortoise.
See you there!
