SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Project Wildlife, a nonprofit that is San Diego’s primary resource for wildlife rehabilitation and education, invites the public to view their life-saving work at their 5th Annual Wildlife Baby Shower event. The shower will be held Saturday, April 5th, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at their Central Triage Center in Linda Vista. This family-friendly event happens only one day each year at the beginning of our bustling baby season. The whole community is invited to have an inside look at Project Wildlife’s Triage Center, learn from a wide variety of Animal Ambassadors, enjoy vendor booths and participate in a wildlife festival with a fun-filled kid zone, games and food.
“Each spring and summer, Project Wildlife receives and cares for thousands of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife babies that are brought to our Triage Centers from throughout San Diego County for medical attention and care,” Project Wildlife Executive Director Beth Ugoretz said. “Our annual Baby Shower is a great way to make learning about our work and our mission accessible to the whole community, to teach them what to do if they happen upon wildlife in need, and how they can contribute to Project Wildlife’s efforts to save our local wildlife.”
Shower attendees are encouraged to bring their tax-deductible “baby gifts” of food, medications and other supplies to the event or to bring monetary donations. A shower Wish List and Amazon.com gift registry can be found at www.projectwildlife.org. The event will be held at Project Wildlife’s Central Triage Center at 887 ½ Sherman Street, San Diego, CA 92110.
