Crow Picture Show

The CROW Picture Show offers an insider’s look at why critters come to CROW, and features photos of
the wild animals who wind up there.Last year, Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Southwest Florida’s only wildlife hospital, cared for 4,111 sick, injured, and orphaned animals. Of the more than
200 different species, 54 percent were birds, 38 percent were mammals, and
eight percent were reptiles/amphibians/ invertebrates.
Due to restrictions imposed by governmental agencies, CROW cannot allow visitors to view patients in person. But in this 30-minute presentation visitors can see photos of current and past patients,
with commentary by Claudia Burns, a veteran clinic volunteer.
The CROW Picture Show is presented each Friday at 11 a.m. in the CROW Healing Winds Visitor Education Center at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission for
adults is $5, teens, $3, and free for members and children 12 and under. Admission includes the presentation, plus the opportunity to explore CROW’s hands-on educational facility and become
familiar with its efforts to save wildlife through compassion, care and education.
For more information, call 472-3644, ext. 231. To learn more about CROW,
