We rescued a Petrel!

This week we had an endemic Galapagos Petrel come into the clinic! These beautiful birds are endangered, and this particular bird is having trouble flying. Petrel’s are nocturnal so he became fairly energetic at night so we decided to try to release him. Unfortunately all efforts to fly were unfruitful, so after a nice fish meal he will stay the night in the clinic. We will keep you up to date on this wonderful creature.
