The Whale Museum is joining forces with Wolf Hollow Wildlife Rehabilitation Center to host a “Wild San Juan” talk on April 18 titled, “Hawks and Herons … Cats and Cars: Living with Wildlife in the San Juan Islands.”
The talk will take place at 5 p.m. on April 18 at The Whale Museum. It will be preceded by an informal reception with refreshments at 4 p.m. Join staff from Wolf Hollow Wildlife Rehabilitation Center and The Whale Museum to understand more about human and wildlife issues, to discuss wildlife problems you may have encountered and to consider ways we can reduce these issues, so we can live more harmoniously together. Part of the beauty of living on the San Juans is the abundant wildlife, but this can also be part of the challenge. Heron flying over or otters diving in the bay are not just scenery. They are working hard to make a living and raise their kids. Their quest for food and shelter can bring them into conflict with the human inhabitants of our island home and our activities can have major impacts on their lives. Through becoming more aware of the impacts of our actions, visitors and residents of San Juan Island can learn to be better stewards of the wildlife that share their home with us.
This evening is free and open to the public. For more information, call 360-378-4710 ext. 30 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
