Meet Our Animal Ambassadors

Each of our Animal Ambassadors has a unique story and important place in our programs.  Bringing guests closer to our ambassadors is just one way we will help others gain an appreciation for local wildlife.


Animal Ambassador, Lola (patient #13-0533) is an American Kestrel that arrived at CROW with a broken wing that could not be repaired. Along with arthritis in the same wing, this prevents her from being released.

Meet Lola


Bashful, a male opossum (patient #16-1741), was found by residence who noticed the opossum wandering around the neighborhood leaning slightly to the left and continually falling on its side.

Meet Bashful


Mina, a great horned owl (patient #16-3770) was brought to the clinic in December of 2016. She had suffered an injury and lost part of her wing. The amputation had completely healed before she was admitted to the hospital. She was otherwise in good health and it is suspected her mate had been caring for her in the wild.

Meet Mina


Talon is a red-tailed hawk. When younger, Talon suffered a wing injury which was unable to be corrected rendering him unable to fly well enough to hunt on his own.

Meet Talon


Billy the Armadillo (patient #17-1136) arrived at the clinic in April of 2017 after he was found as an orphan in Cape Coral, Florida. At the time, due to the classification of his species as a non-native species, Billy was unable to be released back into wild when he got older.
