An Inside Look At
The CROW Picture Show pres-
ents informative anecdotes about
the native and migratory wildlife
species brought to the Clinic for the
Rehabilitation of Wildlife, along with
photos of patients admitted to the
In 2014, CROW’s wildlife hospital
cared for 3,410 sick, injured or orphaned
animals. Of the 200 different species,
57 percent were birds, with 37 percent
mammals and six percent reptiles.
CROW is not permitted to display its
patients to the public, so this hour-long
presentation offers the next best thing:
numerous candid snapshots of current
and past patients, with commentary by
Claudia Burns, a veteran clinic volunteer.
The next CROW Picture Show will be
held on Friday, October 23 at 11 a.m.
in CROW’s Visitor Education Center
at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road, across
from The Sanibel School. Admission is
$7 for adults, $5 for teens and free for
current members and children under 13.
The entry fee also includes access to the
Visitor Education Center, which exhibits
CROW’s efforts to save wildlife through
care, education and collaboration. For
more information, call 472-3644.
