This week the Wildlife Center of Virginia will be releasing three high-profile patients – a Peregrine Falcon, a Golden Eagle, and a Bald Eagle. This release of “the big three” is unprecedented in the Wildlife Center’s 30-year history.
The peregrine release is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 6, at the Grandview Nature Preserve on State Park Drive] in Hampton.
Golden Eagle. Also on Wednesday, June 6, the Center will release a Golden Eagle in the Shenandoah Valley.
If you plan on coming to one — or two! — of these releases, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
While the release of the “Big Three” attracts significant public attention, the Wildlife Center releases dozens of animals each week, quietly and without fanfare. Within the past week, for example, the Center released 28 animals, including a Turkey Vulture, a Yellow-bellied Slider, an Eastern Chipmunk, seven Eastern Box Turtles, and five Grey Squirrels.
