Everybody’s Falcon At Me: Fabulous Falcons
with the Center for Wildlife
 
Tuesday, May 25
6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
via Zoom
 
Did you think the fastest animal on earth was the cheetah? Would you be surprised to hear that a falcon is the actual answer? Falcons are powerful and impressive members of the raptor family that have awed and inspired humans for as long as we have existed together. Join Thomas Memorial Library and Center for Wildlife via Zoom to learn more about these fascinating animals. Meet Center for Wildlife’s non-releasable falcon ambassadors up close and learn about their natural history as well as personal stories. There are so many ways we can help our wild neighbors, from not using rodenticide to not tossing food out of our windows while driving. Come learn about all the ways you can make a difference and connect with these amazing animals. We look forward to seeing you there!

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.
