A very Grebe-y time at CWC!

As 2015 comes to a close, we first would like to thank all of our volunteers, supporters and the local community for all you have done to fulfill Chintimini Wildlife Center's mission this past year. 

Looking forward to 2016, we have some exciting announcements! Very soon we will debut a new and much improved website and have just launched a blog where you can keep up to date with news and events. Aside from our Facebook page, we will also be actively posting on Instagram, Twitter and Youtube, so we will have many ways to stay in touch. 

As of today the clinic has admitted 1,471 wildlife patients in 2015 - more than any previous year in Chintimini's history!

Most recently we've received an influx of Western Grebes (photo above). Blown off course by coastal storms, they've become grounded (unable to walk or fly) and arrive in the clinic emaciated. Read more about CWC's time intensive efforts to rehabilitate these unique birds

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to contribute to the care and release of these patients at this time, it would be greatly appreciated.

We've included other fun ways to contribute and take care of some last minute gift giving PLUS a swim time video of two Eared Grebes that will surely help you through this rainy day.

Thanks again for your continued interest and support.

All of the patients, staff and volunteers at Chintimini Wildlife Center wish you a very Happy Holiday and a bright New Year!

Watch 2 Eared Grebes taking a swim break. Look closely and notice the yellow banded grebe is more buoyant while the non-banded grebe's back is submerged. Before release, they will both be waterproofed using Dawn dish soap.
Your support enables us to provide care for Oregon's injured and orphaned wildlife.
