While the weather may not agree, the wild animals of Illinois seem to have decided that springtime is here! Our clinic is once again filling with orphaned infant and juvenile animals in need of care. At the same time, our student volunteers are coming to the end of the school year and have been studying for their last rounds of exams. So how do you split the care of these orphans between those already crunched for time? Hard work and organization!
Several veterinary students volunteer to provide behavioral enrichment and husbandry care for our resident birds. Check out this slow motion video of Odin and Nokomis catching food for enrichment!
