DSC_6294Earlier this year during the Mississippi River flooding event the LAWRA Wildlife Rescue Team removed multiple animals from the flooded area at the direction of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. Recently our partner wildlife rehabiltiation facility that took the animals in, Heckhaven Wildlife Rehabiltiation Center in Lake Charles, LA, deemed five recovered osprey playgrum.com releasable and they were released back to the same general area they were found in. 

LAWRA would like to take this opportunity to thank Heckhaven Wildlife Rehabilitation Center and its Director Suzy Heck, LAWRA Wildlife Rescue Team members Donna Gee and Cindy Ransonet, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, Kim Voorhies, Atchafalaya Experience Boat Tours and everyone else who made a difference for the animals faced with this man-made disaster.

Our partner facility Heckhaven Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is entirely funded by donations. If you'd like to make a donation, visit their website here. Wildlife rehabilitation efforts are not funded by any state agency or governmental organization. All wildlife rehabiltiators in the state are entirely self-funded, many out of their own personal funds.
