2019 Annual T-shirt Fundraiser

September 15 – October 15

Get an awesome Wildlife Rescue League t-shirt for yourself, friends and family!

Wildlife Rescue league is a nonprofit dedicated to providing care for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife with the intent of releasing them back into their native habitat. It takes the help of many dedicated WRL volunteers to staff WRL’s Helpline, to locate transporters for animals and to find rehabilitators to care for the animals. WRL is supported entirely by donations from the public.

The funds raised during this T-shirt campaign will go directly to buying food, medicine and supplies for local rehabilitators helping Virginia’s native wildlife.

Why Owls?

For Wildlife Rescue League’s third annual T-shirt fundraiser, the focus is on a majestic raptor, the owl.

These intriguing birds are a perfect Halloween symbol. This is a time of the year when owls are noticeably active as they are establishing their winter territories.

They are nocturnal by nature but some are diurnal and active both night and day — when there is still some daylight left or shortly before daybreak.

The most dangerous threats to owls include: poisons used to kill rodents that remain in their bodies and and herbicides that infect mice and rats that eat grain; collisions with cars and fences, habitat loss and poaching.

Fun facts about owls

  • Not all owls hoot. Some owl species “hiss,” “bark,” “screech,” “whistle,” “whinny,” and “scream.”
  • Many owl species have asymmetrical ears and are able to pinpoint the location of sounds in multiple dimensions.
  • Their eyes are tube-shaped and completely immobile, providing binocular vision.
  • Owls can rotate their necks 270 degrees.
  • A group of owls is called a parliament.
  • The tiniest owl in the world, Elf Owl, is only 5 inches tall. The largest North American owl, the Great Gray Owl, is up to 32 inches tall.
  • Barn Owls can eat up to 1,000 mice per year.
