IMPORTANT LEGAL INFORMATION ABOUT HELPING WILDLIFE

Posted on 07/12/2017

We have received many calls lately asking if our Center can take in wildlife from nearby West Virginia and other states. Unfortunately, Virginia state law does not permit the movement of wildlife across state lines, even for rehabilitation, and Blue Ridge Wildlife Center cannot accept these animals.  Though most people are very understanding of the regulations, some are understandably upset by the fact that they cannot bring their local wildlife from another state to the Center.

Osprey like this one are somewhat unusual patients at the Center as they are more abundant along the coast. This bird came to us from Alexandria after being found floating in the Potomac with a leg injury.

Opossum Reproduction!

Posted on 03/20/2017

We have received two adult female Virginia Opossums in the past 3 days, both having been found weak and emaciated near homes. This time of year, we are always sure to check the female’s pouch for babies, in this case, the first of up to 2 litters a female may have per season. Our second opossum patient does in fact have multiple babies.
