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.

    Double-crested Cormorant Saved from Fish Hook Injury at SFWC

    Fishing is a popular pastime in South Florida, but many people who fish don’t realize their bait may be enticing to more than just the fish. It is a common occurrence for birds to go after a baited hook thinking it is easy food, resulting in them either swallowing the hook or getting injured or tangled up in the hook and line, and many of these birds end up at the South Florida Wildlife Center.
