Critter Cam 2

Happy World Turtle Day! You are watching one of the Center's education turtles -- Wilson the Eastern Box Turtle or Emma the Russian Tortoise.

You are watching Bear Cam! Most of our 2016 Black Bears have been released, but we still have four left in our two-acre Black Bear Complex. They are re-growing hair prior to release. They are currently helping us test two Virginia Correctional Enterprises bear-resistant products -- a trash can and a storage locker!

Or ... you are watching Buttercup, the Center's education Black Vulture! Buttercup is a very handsome vulture who is human-imprinted and unable to return to the wild.
