Wildlife Center gets $50,000

Chevron U.S.A. Inc. will present The Wildlife Center of Texas (formerly Wildlife Rehab & Education) with a $50,000 donation to help support this non-profit organization and their efforts to save Texas wildlife on Monday, March 28. The Wildlife Center of Texas is Houston’s only trauma hospital for all species of injured, ill and orphaned wildlife.

In 2010, The Wildlife Center of Texas rehabilitated 2,300 mammals, 150 reptiles and 4,500 wild birds. When Hurricane Ike slammed into the Texas Coast, The Wildlife Center of Texas worked 24 hours a day as they nursed over 1,500 baby squirrels back to health and then released them back into the wild.  The team at the Wildlife Center of Texas is also HAZWOPER certified and ICS trained.  In addition, they have been actively involved in oiled wildlife response for over 20 years and have responded to 60 oiled wildlife responses in the Gulf Coast area.

“We appreciate Chevron’s commitment to the environment and this donation allows The Wildlife Center of Texas to continue to provide quality care for all native wild animals. We certainly hope you can join us for this momentous occasion,” said Sharon Schmalz, executive director of The Wildlife Center of Texas.
