Wildlife Center asks public to look out for wildlife

The Paul A. and Veronica H. Gross Wildlife Center of Southwest Florida, located in Venice, wants to remind everyone that with COVID-19, it is easy to overlook the ongoing threats posed to wildlife by Red Tide and other forms of toxicity that exist, such as cyanobacteria (blue-green) algae. With a focus on avian and mammalian victims that the Wildlife Center receives calls about or are brought to the organization, here are some symptoms of mild to severe toxicity that are fairly easy for the public to spot. They include “staggering” – a “drunken gait;” tremors; depression; an inability to stand; and a loss of fear of people. In birds and mammals, these are generally due to eating fish or other sea creatures that are weakened or killed by the toxin, which then enters the system of the secondary victim. There is no medication available, so treatment consists of “supportive” actions – flushing of the system by oral or subcutaneous fluid hydration, nutritional support and keeping the patient as warm and as unstressed as possible. If you see a bird or animal with any of the symptoms listed, please call 484•9657 or bring it to the Center for attention at 925 N. Jackson Road, Venice. Visit www.wildlifecenterofvenice.org or their Facebook page to learn more.
