Nature’s Night Shift: Nocturnal Animals, with Center for Wildlife (Zoom only program)

Tuesday, April 25 -- 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Maine Wildlife Series

How does a bat find thousands of tiny mosquitoes in the dark? Why would an opossum choose to lumber around at night? How does a porcupine defend itself against a predator? How can an owl see its way through the forest? Wild animals continue their hard work, even as we sleep. Join us for our monthly Maine Wildlife Series, where we welcome educators from the Center for Wildlife in Cape Neddick and their fascinating and lovable animal ambassadors who will help us answer these questions and find out how nocturnal mammals utilize all of their senses to find food and shelter at night. You’ll never be in the dark with your knowledge of local nocturnal animals again after this fascinating introduction to Maine’s creatures of the night. 

Please note that there has been a change of time and venue: This program will now be taking place solely via Zoom. If you plan on attending, please register for this program below so that we can send you a Zoom link to join us. All are welcome!

About the Center for Wildlife
The Center for Wildlife is nestled at the base of Mount Agamenticus, in Cape Neddick, Maine, where for 33 years their facility has treated over 50,000 injured and orphaned wild animals and presented programming to thousands of community members annually.  
Center for Wildlife proudly serves the New England region, typically managing 2,000 patients each year (native wildlife injured because of vehicle collisions, domestic pets, pollution, fishing lines, oil spills, and other human-related causes), representing more than 190 species of birds, reptiles, and mammals. The clinic is run out of a modest 1,200 square foot building and a campus of over 45 outdoor enclosures, all of which can be filled with patients during the peak season of April – October. The goal of their wildlife clinic is to medically treat and provide rehabilitation to injured wild animals so that they can be released back to the wild where they belong.
