Injured Eagles and Orphaned Otters!
What types of animals do we care for at Wolf Hollow? Why do they need our care? How can you help?
Find out the answers to these and other questions you may have about our work at Wolf Hollow. Join staff, board members and volunteers for a presentation and discussion at the Anacortes Library Meeting Room, 4-5.30p Dec 6th. We look forward to seeing you and your friends and neighbors.
Adopt an Animal.
What do you get that special person for Christmas? How about an eagle, a seal or an owl? You could “adopt” a Wolf Hollow animal as a gift for a friend or relative. Each attractive and educational adoption packet includes a photo of an individual animal that received care at Wolf Hollow, its personal story, and natural history notes about that species of local wild creature. This symbolic adoption helps us provide care for other injured or orphaned wild animals of that type in the coming year. Would they prefer a River Otter, a Tree Swallow or Deer Fawn? Click here to choose.
We are now accepting applications for internship positions at Wolf Hollow during the May to October period 2015. Please visit the Education/Internship section of this web site for further details.
Three more seals were released on September 19th for the 2014 season.
Rajka (names are apple varieties this year!) was seen alone on Locust Beach near Bellingham for more than 24 hours. The beach was busy with lots of people and dogs. He was brought to us thin and dehydrated, just 18.7 pounds and about 10 days old.
Cameo was found alone in Friday Harbor Marina, following boats and approaching people. She was also brought to us thin, weak, and dehydrated. She weighed just 17.4 pounds and was only about 2 days old.
Liberty was brought to us from Lummi Island where she was found alone on a beach. She was about 18.9 pounds and about 10 days old. Along with being thin and dehydrated, she had a right eye injury and swelling on her head.
All three seals were released weighing over 50 pounds.
Just before release, a small, light-weight, hat-tag is glued to the fur on the tops of their heads for easy spotting. If you happen to see a seal with a funny hat, you can help by calling the marine mammal stranding network hotline (1 800 562 8832) to report the sighting.
