Utopia Wildlife Rehabilitators
Utopia Wildlife Rehabilitators, Inc is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to providing expert veterinary medical care, educational programs, and information about living with our native wildlife. Utopia Wildlife Rehabilitators came into being during the West Nile outbreak in 2002. They treat and release approximately 200 orphaned and injured animals and birds of prey each year. They hold the only federal permit for treating migratory birds and raptors (hawks and owls) in the area.They get calls from Bartholomew and six surrounding counties. Education is a very important part of what Utopia is all about. Unlike many organizations that take a ‘show and tell’ approach to teach people about wildlife, they bring the ‘real’ message about the animals and birds that are right here in Indiana. For more information about U.T.O.P.I.A., please visit their website at http://www.utopiawildlife.org/.
Utopia Wildlife Rehabilitators will be at the festival March 3rd and 10th at 1:00 pm at Burton’s Maplewood Farm.
