Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre Webcams Show Cute Orphaned Animals

June 29th, 2011 by Mark

A wildlife rehabilitation centre is celebrating its 3rd year broadcasting video of the animals it treats. Coast and Canyon Wildlife, which has its headquarters in Malibu, California, takes in and looks after orphaned animals.

Over the years, the webcams have proved popular, having received more than 500,000 views. And with the centre taking in over 1,000 animals a year, there is always a wide variety of animals to look at.

The webcams were started by Kim Barker, who decided it would be nice to install a webcam next to the squirrel feeder. Over time, she started putting objects in the webcam to keep the audience engaged, and before long was creating new scenes every day for webcam viewers.

Squirrels and a... red thing -- don't ask me what it is!

They specialise in taking in squirrels, opossums, and skunks. At present, they are showing a Californian grey squirrel and a fox squirrel living together on one webcam, and a skunk on another.

The skunk is just a baby, being only two weeks old. It was found abandoned in someone’s backyard, but thankfully is getting the care it needs.
