A great visit to Oatland Island Wildlife Center of Savannah

A few weeks before our trip to Savannah, Georgia, I was looking through the things to do and came across the Oatland Island Wildlife Center. Sadly, when I went to their website, I learned that hurricane Mathew had been very mean to them. Many habitats were damaged. Thankfully, these were the animals day areas, and their nighttime digs were safe, as were all the animals.

Lucky for us, they opened the day after Christmas, with only the wolf exhibit being off limits. So, off we went!

Many of these animals cannot be returned to the wild, for one reason or another.

Many of the birds cannot fly. On the cages, they have signs that inform you that birds that cannot fly like the security of the small space.

It was almost low tide here, the water was slowly getting lower, exposing the oysters.

Hello, hello, hello. Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me. Is there any one at home?

The red fox was supposed to be in here. Maybe in the little house.

WHO!

Thee were two bald eagles in here. There was a long tree trunk that went from the ground to this high roost.

  1. I love owls…and I’m glad that this animals found a place where people do their best to give them a good life… it’s sad when they can’t go back to their natural habitat, but at least they now have a “home” instead….

  2. These are once wild animals who can no longer care for themselves and would otherwise die in the wild. They are now provided shelter and food. This is a very good thing.
    Thank you for your good presentation of this uplifting story.
