A little about this: The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center (WRC) is one of the largest independent veterinary hospitals for wildlife in the country. From its roots as a student organization at the University of Minnesota in 1979 admitting 50 animals, WRC now treats nearly 9,000 injured animals from among more than 200 species each year. In addition, WRC sponsors robust wildlife medicine education programs in cooperation with the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine and other vet schools nation-wide. More than 500 people volunteer at WRC donating a total of 38,000 hours of time –the equivalent of more than 18 full-time employees.
Each year WRC treats dozens of large waterfowl including the Common Loon. Medical care for loons is quite specific, and expensive, requiring special handling, caging and nutrition. From the Gulf oil spill to the water quality of northern lakes, Minnesota's beautiful state bird faces unprecedented challenges. WRC provides medical care to help preserve and protect this magnificent bird and its iconic call.

WRC is 501(c)(3) organization that is supported entirely on donations from the public."
