Wildlife Center of Texas rehabilitates wild animals, returns them to native habitats
Every year, the Wildlife Center of Texas (WCT) treats more than 10,000 injured, sick or oiled wild animals. Treatment includes emergency trauma care, long-term rehabilitation, conditioning for release and, finally, return to the wild. Sharon Schmalz, Executive Director of the Wildlife Center of Texas, spoke at the 2016 IADC HSE&T Conference, held 2-3 February in Houston, to educate drilling industry professionals on the work required to save these animals. Watch the video with Ms Schmalz to learn about the WCT Oiled Wildlife Response Program, as well as the WCT’s work to rehabilitate brown pelicans affected by the Breton Sound 51 Oil Spill last year in the Gulf of Mexico.
