Meet Angel, Our Senior Ambassador Eagle
In 1999, Angel was found as a fledgling on the ground near an eagle’s nest. She had a broken bone in her left wing and was surviving on fish scraps that had fallen from nearby heron nests.
Her broken wing healed, but unfortunately she was not able to sustain flight and could not be released to the wild.
In 2000, a visiting 4th-grade student exclaimed, “She is an angel!” The name stuck. You can meet Angel today and others like her.
