The Whatcom Humane Society Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is the primary facility for Whatcom County, but often receives animals from all over the state. Housing, diet, husbandry, enrichment and medical care tailored to each species maximizes their chances of release. Join Makenna Johansen and Alysha Evans as they discuss the role the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center plays in Whatcom County and as they walk us through the rehabilitation process from intake to release. They will also delight us with details of some of the cases they receive and give us all pointers on when it is appropriate to bring injured birds and animals to the Rehabilitation Center and when we should let nature take its course. Lecture: Raptors Around the WorldSunday, February 10;  2 PMBellingham Central Library, Lecture RoomInternational raptor expert and author Sergio Seipke showcases some of the most exquisite raptor photos taken over five years on six continents.
