Our new building provides us with updated facilities, more hospital space, and a new public education area. It allows us to provide complete onsite veterinary care for wild animals, including surgeries, radiology, and isolation. The new facility greatly improves our ability to provide emergency care and enables us to quarantine ailing animals more effectively to prevent the spread of disease.
In addition, the new facility will eventually accommodate public areas where members of the community can learn more about local wildlife, and it will allow us to present education programs for small groups. Raising awareness about local species has always been a core part of the Center's mission. Now we will have the opportunity to share even more information and to help ensure that future generations maintain a strong interest in the natural world around us.
Any contact with humans is very stressful for a wild animal, including voices and curious eyes peering into cages. We don't yet have a room where we can present education programs, with live education animals, to the public. Part of our new facility will eventually include space for this purpose.
