The Cornell Wildlife Health Center
represents an unprecedented approach to the health challenges wild animals face here in the northeast U.S. and around the world - a comprehensive, science-based response by a team of the world's top wildlife and ecosystem health experts.
These past few months have been a busy time for the wildlife veterinarians and technicians based at Cornell's Janet L. Swanson Wildlife Hospital, which provides state-of-the-art medical and surgical care for ill and injured native wildlife. Between May and July of this year, the Swanson Wildlife Hospital
rescued approximately 150 eggs
from pregnant snapping and painted turtles that were hit by cars and too injured to survive and lay eggs on their own. Most of the successfully hatched turtles were released in September, and some will be cared for through the winter by Cornell veterinary students and volunteers. Watch the video of this incredible effort
. In addition, the latest issue of the
Cornell Alumni Magazine
features the heroic work of the Janet L. Swanson Wildlife Hospital.
