When a Black-crowned Night-Heron was brought to the SFWC wildlife hospital with a badly injured wing, veterinarians found his treatment especially challenging.

The South Florida Wildlife Center cares for wildlife from all around South Florida. We are incredibly fortunate to have three wildlife rescue ambulances for cases where the injured animal cannot be brought to us or the animal’s condition requires retrieval by an expert in wildlife rescue. Such was the case with an injured pelican brought in by one of our rescue teams after someone reported seeing him in distress.
