Cam in the Classroom
The Critter Cam experience builds on children's curiosity with nature. Teachers are using Critter Cam in a variety of subjects -- not only biology and the environment but also math, vocabulary, problem-solving, and creative writing.
Caring for Critters
The Wildlife Center cares for about two dozen permanent animal residents – hawks, owls, eagles, opossums, and snakes – who are important wildlife ambassadors.
Founded in 1982, the Wildlife Center of Virginia has provided quality health care, often on an emergency basis, to more than 60,000 sick, injured, and orphaned wild animals. As a non-profit organization, the Center relies on the generosity of caring individuals.
