First Eagle Release for 2019

This 2018 hatch year Bald Eagle came into our care suffering from a wing abscess that had become so severe it could no longer fly. Upon further testing we also determined it had lead poisoning. We started it immediately on antibiotics for the abscess & chelation for the lead in its system. Within a few weeks it was ready to send home to Tulelake NWR. Our volunteers released the eagle February 16 within 1/2 mile of where it was originally found. Many thanks to the folks who reported the injured bird & to the USFW staff at Tulelake for transporting the bird to our facility.

Thank You to The Kinsman Foundation!

The Kinsman Foundation has been a continuing supporter of Badger Run for years.  They have had a huge impact on our ability to care for the sick, injured, & orphaned wildlife of the Klamath Basin.  We have just received a $10,000 grant from them to help us fund our Animal Care Coordinator position here at Badger Run.  This allows us to further enhance the standard of care we provide here at Badger Run.

A Very Special Thank You

A HUGE thank you to the Debra Dold Charitable Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation! We received a $1,000 grant today! A few weeks ago we received a call from Ms. Dold about a poor Osprey that was hopelessly tangled in fishing line. It also turned out it had a fish hook embedded in it’s mouth. We were able to successfully treat & release the little guy all on the same day. This grant is going to help us help many other critters!
