In celebration of the launch of our Wild and Free Necklace, Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre stopped by for a visit with two of their wildlife education ambassadors: Arctic, the Arctic/Norwegian blue cross fox and Aidin, the Peregrine falcon. Customers were able to meet and learn more about Arctic and Aidin as well as the work of PWRC.
Meet Arctic! This friendly fox came into the care of PWRC after being rescued from a fur factory in the United States. Because of his life in captivity he wouldn’t have the skills to survive being released in the wild. So he enjoys spending his time digging (seen digging in the flower garden at the corner of Arthur and McDermot) and burrowing. His thick fur coat will soon be shed for the summer where he enjoys swimming in his pool!
We also had the opportunity to meet Aidin! Aidin came into the care of PWRC because cataracts in her eyes limit her vision. She is a very chatty bird, making sounds and communicating with the PWRC volunteers.
Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre works to provide the best care possible for injured, sick and abandoned wildlife in Manitoba with the goal of successfully releasing animals back into their natural habitat. Occasionally, individual animals who have recovered from injuries and/or would not be able to survive in the wild are placed in their education program where trained PWRC volunteers teach the public about wildlife issues.
