A word from Sunrise Wildlife Rehabilitation:
"As the name of our organization indicates, we focus on the rescue and rehabilitation of injured, orphaned and displaced native wildlife. As our mission and our passion have evolved, our interpretive wildlife programs have become equally vital to the organization.
Last season SWR conducted 28 hours of interpretive wildlife programing, reaching over 3,400 people, proving time and again that experiencing live native wildlife in a safe, controlled setting inspires a broader understanding and appreciation for all wildlife. SWR volunteers witness the lasting impression that these native wildlife ambassadors can have on a person, especially youth who are the next generation of wildlife advocates and stewards of the earth SWR maintains the proper state and federal permits to present four educational owls; Great Horned, Barred, and two color morph of Eastern Screech Owl, which are the focus of Owls of North Florida."
