GIVING THANKS
   For over 27 years, the Chintimini Wildlife Center has been committed to making a difference in our world by providing a safe place for the public to bring injured and orphaned wildlife, and by sharing the Wonders of Wildlife with people through our environmental education programs.
   Everyone from our dedicated staff and volunteers to you, our generous supporters and friends, have come together to make this possible. Without the incredible involvement of our wonderful community, we wouldn’t be able to provide these services.
     So from all of us here at the Chintimini Wildlife Center, thank you for your ongoing support and we wish you well in the coming year.

LIVING WITH WILDLIFE

Glue traps are a common, yet inhumane tool for trapping unwanted “guests” who’ve made their homes in undesirable places. Many people choose this method because of its low cost and ease of use, however glue traps remain to be indiscriminate and trap unintended victims such as bats, birds, snakes, and even pets. Any animal attracted by the bait can become ensnared. One of our volunteers has first hand experience with how detrimental glue traps can be.

NOTABLE NOVEMBER PATIENTS 

Below (and the two owls above) are some patients who were admitted to Chintimini for various reasons in the month of November. Some of the patients have been released, while some are still recovering in our clinic! 
 Great Horned Owl - Caught in chicken coop    
American Crow - Transfer from another facility     

Silver-haired Bat - General trauma    
Golden-crowned Sparrow - Collision with window     

Bushtit Recovery
After a probable collision with a window, this Bushtit was admitted to CWC with bruising to one side of her body and head trauma. She was unable to stand up or feed herself for the first 24 hours. After 5 days of care at CWC she has made a full recovery and is now ready for release
Thanks again for your continued interest in and support of Chintimini Wildlife Center!
