Eastern Sierra Wildlife Care’s Fifth Annual Wild Spirits fundraiser will be held Sunday, October 24, 6-8 p.m, at Mountain Light Gallery in Bishop.
The evening includes door prizes, a wildlife slide show, hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, snakes and Razzle the raven.
This fall, Eastern Sierra Wildlife Care said goodbye to three Swainson’s hawks and two black-chinned humming birds as they set off on their first migration. A troupe of five orphaned raccoons are now on their own putting into practice the survival skills they learned at ESWC – catching crawdads and crickets and gathering rosehips.
Wild Spirits celebrates these, all wild creatures and honors Karma the red-tailed hawk.
Karma’s story is unique. Only a year old, Karma was an illegal captive, injured and suffering from heat prostration. Unable to feed himself, Karma would have been euthanized at most rehab facilities. ESWC stuck with him.
This year’s wildlife ambassador is Razzle the raven.
