From Howard Cork
Nature Lovers, I am writing this letter on behalf of the West Virginia Raptor Rehabilitation Center in Morgantown. If you are interested in preserving all wildlife in this state and thru out the world, including birds of prey, including eagles, hawks, and owls, please read this.
If you find or know of a wounded bird of prey, please call the WVRRC at 304-366-2867 or contact me at 304-889-3555 (the Corks) anytime and we will try to arrange for a pickup of the bird.
I have been a transporter for several years. A transporter picks up the wounded bird and transport it to the WVRRC, so that it can be care for and hopefully nurtured back to health and released.
Also they need donations to take care of birds, they do have now and also to finish the new center on their 285 acre plot on Bunnr Ridge near Fairmont.
The new center will include facilities to rehabilitate the birds, be open to the public, to have in house education programs, develop day camps for school and civic groups, and other educational workshops.
As of February 15, 2009 they have 11 raptors at the center and have rehabilitated one with seven pending. Pending meaning that they will be able to release them in the near future.
For more information feel free to contact me (304-889-3555) (Preacherhc@ hotmail.com) or the WVRRC.
