Day 6: a pod of opossums

I made a pitstop to see my friend Jay Coles, who recently landed the perfect job at Carolina Wildlife Care. You can’t believe the web of people in that small space tending to sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife—did you know they treat more than 3,000 animals a year? And that doesn’t count the tens of thousands of hotline calls they answer. This is a group of hearty souls committed to helping us all better understand the challenges our growing human footprint places on wildlife and the need in today’s world for true wildlife conservation. What a thrill it was to go behind the scenes for an up close look at their handling of birds, turtles, rabbits, snakes, raccoons, fawns, and squirrels. And oh, yes, Opossums. Precious baby opossums.

Did I show you the sign?

Yes. A great big feather.
