The Mississippi Wildlife Rehabilitation, Inc. (MWR) is a non-profit organization that was formed in 1995 to provide wildlife assistance for injured and orphaned wild birds, reptiles, and mammals. Licensed rehabilitators are responsible for returning these wild animals back into the wild. One of these rehabilitators, Nancy Fachman of Water Valley, MS, will bring some of her educational animals to the North Mississippi Fish Hatchery Visitor Education Center on April 13th at 2:00 pm. Fachman has vast knowledge about raptors in Mississippi and has worked with the rehabilitators since 2000. She will present a program detailing how animals come to the MWR and about efforts made to return them back to their native habitats. Participants young and young at heart can learn more about these creatures and about how rehabilitators help!
