Bubba Greets the Crowd ~

The Tucson Wildlife Center celebrated a milestone - the ribbon cutting ceremony of their new state-of-the-art hospital facility! And what a celebration it was! Mayor Rothschild and Vice Mayor Scott came to assist in the ribbon cutting, TV news crews were busy filming, and through it all, Bubba (one of the Center's permanent residents) fascinated visitors.

This wonderful facility was made possible through the generosity of Sam Goldman who wanted to help heal and rehabilitate injured wildlife. This hospital is a Tucson treasure and I encourage you to visit their website to learn more about them. Here is Joan Cass, one of the Center's many dedicated volunteers, with Bubba.


  1. Bubba came to the Center with a broken wing. Unfortunately, after the surgery he was unable to "fly silently" which is essential for an owl's survival. So now he is one of the Center's best public outreach animals and he visits schools to help educate children about respecting wildlife.
