The Wood County Committee on Aging Inc. held a Back to the Wild event at Wooster Green Thursday afternoon.
Back to the Wild is a licensed Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Castalia. Their primary mission is to rehabilitate and ultimately release into their natural habitat injured, orphaned and displaced wildlife. Through this work, Back to the Wild aims to educate and foster in children and adults an awareness, appreciation, and respect of the natural world.
Back to the Wild brought along a wide variety of amazing animals to discuss. They teach about the birds of prey found in this area of the United States as well as their impact on the environment. They will also include fun facts and tidbits about reptiles, amphibians, insects and mammals, and information about habitats and life histories. Many injuries wild animals sustain due to human impact are completely preventable.
