    Goose Family Finds a New Home at Duchess Sanctuary

    Although the only official animals at our Duchess Sanctuary are horses, the sanctuary is actually home to scores of native wildlife. That’s why, for the past few years we have undertaken numerous wildlife projects with the goal of making sure we are living in harmony with our wild neighbors. Our latest project involved building two floating platforms for the largest pond on the property—one as a nesting platform, the other with perches for raptors and other large birds to sit on.

    Black-crowned Night-Heron Makes Full Recovery at SFWC

    When a Black-crowned Night-Heron was brought to the SFWC wildlife hospital with a badly injured wing, veterinarians found his treatment especially challenging. Not only would the small size of the fractured bone and the threat of infection from a wound over the fracture complicate healing, there was the additional challenge of ensuring this shy, delicate bird was able to eat and heal despite the stress of captivity.

    Pelican With an Injured Wing Makes a Full Recovery at SFWC

    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.

    Great Blue Heron Regains Flight after Major Surgery at SFWC

    This past fall, one of our wildlife rescue ambulances brought in a Great Blue Heron with a severe trauma to one of his wings. It was a worrisome case, not only because of the extent of the injury—the bone was exposed—but also because it was unclear whether the bird would be able to fly again.

    A Young Woodpecker Takes Flight Thanks to the SFWC

    Pileated woodpeckers are one of the most distinct forest birds in North America. As large as crows, with a bold white stripe down their neck and a flaming red crest, their unique look is hard to miss. Like all woodpeckers, they hunt for food by drilling holes in tree trunks and need to be very adept at flying between, climbing and gripping onto trees. So when a young pileated woodpecker was brought into the South Florida Wildlife Center with broken tail feathers and nails, we were concerned about his ability to feed and fend for himself.
