A Coruña: More than a thousand animals cared for at the Wild Fauna Recovery Center | Radio Coruña

Summer is the season when more animals enter the Oleiros Wild Fauna Recovery Center. This hospital, specialized in birds, has treated more than a thousand specimens so far this year.

Specifically, one thousand and forty sick or injured animals. Nine out of ten are birds. The Santa Cruz Wildlife Recovery Center was conceived as a hospital, following the Prestige disaster, to care for birds affected by oil. Since then he has not stopped collecting animals. Summer is the season when more species are attended. However, the heat waves of this summer season have not increased the figure.

The most attended species are seabirds, and birds that do not live in captivity, such as sparrows. Of the total number of animals that enter the Center, more than half are released completely rehabilitated.
