Public and Media Invited to Weekend Release of Rescued Hawks

Rare opportunity to watch rescued hawks fly free into the wild

The Wildlife Center of Texas , Houston's only trauma hospital that accepts all injured, ill, and orphaned wildlife is thrilled to invite the public and the media to the release of two rehabilitated red-tailed hawks. One of the hawks was found emaciated at NASA with a head injury. The second red-tailed hawk arrived at The Center at the end of September 2013 suffering from a fractured wing. After months of rehabilitation that included physical therapy, both hawks are now ready to be released back into their native habitat. The release of these two red-tailed hawks will be a rare video and photo opportunity and we look forward to having all everyone attend.

Marina Bay Animal Hospital: January Business Landscape of the Month

In the heart of South Shore professional area, Marina Bay Animal Hospital is located on a berm that gives the hospital landscaping good drainage.  With a retention area and dry creek bed, drainage is controlled.  The large facility is surrounded by Loblolly Pines, Montezuma Cypress, Texas Sabal Palms and Pindo Palms.  Bottlebrush, variegated gingers, sagos, and lantana keep the plantings simple and easy to maintain.  Marina Bay Animal Hospital was nominated by a garden club member.
