CIRCLE D WILDLIFE REFUGE PREPARES FOR LONG TERM RECOVERY


VICKSBURG, MI, JULY 29TH, 2010: With the ongoing animal rescue effort being coordinated by the State of Michigan and Enbridge Oil, Circle D Wildlife Refuge is transitioning to act as a rehabilitation center for animals who have been cleaned, but may have long term health risks.


The staff of Circle D Wildlife Refuge were some of the first to respond and help contaminated animals in Calhoun County. During the first few hours they were able to rescue several ducks, geese, and a muskrat.


As the situation progresses there will be a need for volunteers, and donations to help with this response. Circle D Wildlife Refuge has worked with many types of animals in the past and is ready to meet this challenge.


For further information, to schedule an interview, or for media visits to the facility please contact email us at: circledvolunteers@gmail.com

Hi,
What is the latest? I have been hoping for an update, how is the spill, how are the animals?
Thanks,

Hi! Sorry it has taken me so long to answer! I intend on writing an update post this week. Things are still being cleaned up. My sister and I traveled to Battle Creek, Marshall and Vicksburg a couple weeks ago to get some much needed supplies down there for the people and animals! I'll go into more detail in my post! Also, the vet my sister works for has been working in the Wildlife hospital down there. I am waiting for an update on that. As far as I can tell it is ongoing. There has been a temporary hold on donations as they have had a lot come in and are now out of space for more until some of the stuff gets used. So they are asking people to hold off for now! People in many different Michigan towns have been helping out! I have family that live in some of these towns that are affected and they are worried, but hopeful. I'll get a more detailed update up. I have had some severe computer issues and had to back it up along with a total reformat! It has been a slow process for me to get everything back on-line previous to the malware virus that got me!

Sincerely,
Khrysania
