Every day new patients arrive at our facility. In an effort to tell their story of survival and highlight the diverse number of species that we rehabilitate, we highlight a new patient each week. Some of these are individuals, others are orphaned siblings. As their cases progress - we will update the outcome - our hope is that many, many of these patients are released!

Today we took in seven baby gulls. They all came from the same location in Everett. Two were brought to us this morning after repeated re-nesting failed. One more came off the roof and was on the ground injured. A staff member and volunteer (Thank You Alistair!!) went out to assess the situation and check on the injured baby gull. Animal control had picked him up moments before we arrived. We spoke to the owners of the business and got access to the roof. The conditions were terrible and one more was about to hit the pavement of a busy road. We ended up taking the five remaining birds. We knew that work on the roof was causing disruption and while we hated to separate them, these guys would be unlikely to thrive in the conditions at this location. Status: Released
