Meet Our Animal Ambassadors

Each of our Animal Ambassador has a unique story and  important place in our programs.  Bringing guests closer to our ambassadors is just one way we will help others gain an appreciation for local wildlife.


Shelldon (patient #15-2068) is a gopher tortoise that was hit by a vehicle and sustained permanent damage to his plastron and right forearm. As a result, he cannot dig burrows or protect himself. When he is not educating visitors in CROW's Visitor Education Center you can find him helping with landscaping and enjoying edible native plants.

Sneezy (patient #14-3324) is a Virginia opossum that was hit by a vehicle and sustained damage to his face and tail. CROW's veterinary staff was able to fix his jaw but had to amputate his tail.

Animal Ambassador, Lola (patient #13-0533) is an American Kestrel that arrived at CROW with a broken wing that could not be repaired. Along with arthritis in the same wing, this prevents her from being released.

Bashful, a female opossum (patient #16-1741) was found by residence who noticed the opossum wandering around the neighborhood leaning slightly to the left and continually falling on its side.
