Next update:  Watson Thrives

If you’ve been following along with local media, you’ll know by now that we have a couple pretty cute moose in our Wildlife Rehabilitation and Research Centre. It’s unusual for us to receive two moose within a couple weeks of each other, especially one from Faro and one from Watson Lake. The two appear to be constant companions. Thanks to the expert care of Dr. Maria Hallock and our Animal Care staff, the moose are eating well. But the road ahead is still uncertain – these moose are going through a stressful, challenging experience. We’ll keep you updated as they grow and develop!

In the meantime, we could use your help. The costs of care are not insignificant. Your gift will help us give them (and other animals in need) the best possible veterinary care – and get them back on their feet or wings!

Faro and Watson, July 2019.  Rehabilitation of orphaned moose calves is notoriously challenging.  Sadly, Faro passed away July 6 due to health complications,even as Watson continued in good health as he grew and developed strongly.
