  Wildlife rehabbers consist of a small number of people who are licensed by state to care for wild animals. The purpose of the annual Wild About Animals exhibition is to raise money to that end. Hawks, deer, squirrels, geese - you name it - wildlife has a tough time these days, and thank goodness there are people who devote so many hours in nursing orphaned, injured, sick, and displaced wild animals for the purpose of releasing them back into the wild.

Thus the first exhibit on entering the arena is Centre Wildlife Care (CWC).

  Among the several animals brought to the arena are a leucistic (almost albino) robin and Sammy the tiny saw-whet owl.

  Among items for sale by CWC were hand-puppets and posters.

Robyn Graboski, the founder and director of CWC, was tireless in making the rounds of the arena.

  Of course, no matter how busy Robyn was that day, she too had time to hold a rooster.

  Wild About Animals was fortunate in having another wildlife organization, Skye's Spirit Wildlife Rehabiliation Center.
