Hang Out with Hinton and Learn About Swainson’s Hawks’ Epic Migration

With WildCare closed to the public due to COVID-19 shelter-in-place protocols, we know our regular visitors are missing us and our educational animals!

We miss you too!

Below are videos, first presented as Facebook livestreams to help you stay in touch.

We post a new video every Wednesday at 1pm PST featuring a live, close-up look at one of our educational Wildlife Ambassadors, or a sneak peak behind the scenes of the Wildlife Hospital! These videos stream live on WildCare’s Facebook page (facebook.com/wildcarebayarea) and we post them here. You may also click here to sign up to receive an email featuring the most recent video!

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, WildCare as an essential service continues to treat injured and orphaned wildlife patients, and care for our resident educational animals.

Click to donate to help us keep our Wildlife Ambassadors and all of our Wildlife Hospital patients healthy during this time!

Meet Stryker the California Kingsnake – July 29, 2020

IMPORTANT NOTE: In this video Melissa and Alison discuss how to tell a venomous snake from a nonvenomous snake
based on the shape of the snake’s head (diamond-shaped for venomous) and the shape of the snake’s pupils
(slit-shaped for venomous). This is true of pit vipers (like rattlesnakes) but it is NOT true of all venomous snakes.
The Coral Snake is an obvious exception. Learn more about Coral Snakes (which are amazing animals!) here.
