A couple weeks ago, our beloved educational raptor, Kessie the American Kestrel, passed away due to old age. Kessie came to us in 2001 and has been with us for about 17 years! She came in with a severe injury to her left wing that required amputation, making her non-releasable. Kessie has been an amazing ambassador for the Wildlife Care Clinic that has done many educational programs during her time here. She has been loved by many staff, interns, volunteers, and others. We all miss her so much and we will never forget her. We have attached some photos of her in her memory.

Hi supporters!

We got in ANOTHER pelican! This one came in today because he appeared grounded in a neighborhood for awhile. It does have a chewing lice infestation just like our other pelicans did! He is overall bright and active but we will be treating him for those parasites.

We are still looking for donations of smaller species of fish (bluegill, green sunfish, minnows, etc.). We are very low on our fish supply so we need all of your help! Please call us at 515-294-4009 or email us at wcc@iastate.edu if you would like to donate.

Hi supporters!

Remember that pelican we posted about that came in dehydrated and with a lot of ectoparasites in his mouth?

Well he was released after spending some time at our clinic building up strength. Check out the amazing pictures and video!

These adorable young mice were brought in as apparently healthy orphans. They are doing great, already on a solid diet, and will be released as soon as weather permits.

Stay tuned for a release!

Hello supporters!

Notice anything different between these two juvenile Fox Squirrels?

Earlier this week we received a litter of two apparently healthy orphaned Fox Squirrels. One of the two is melanistic, meaning he has an increase of the dark-colored pigment melanin in the skin and fur.

They are both doing great in our care and we should expect a great release in the future!
