As Seen on TV: Oliver the Virginia Opossum

During mid-March, Public Affairs Manager Alex Wehrung paid a visit to the WHSV-3 studio in Harrisonburg with Oliver, one of the Center’s non-releasable education ambassadors.

Since January 2024, Wehrung has been featured in WHSV-3’s monthly Wildlife Wednesday series — short in-studio interviews that highlight seasonal wildlife help and advice topics including Black Bear parturition day, skunk mating season, and most-recently, Virginia Opossums.

“Thanks to Oliver, audiences can make that real, concrete, and tangible connection from a major threat to wildlife to something that’s right in front of them.”
